Robert Oster Signature Inks are a new line coming out of South Australia and are making enthusiasts sit up and take notice! They are very competitively priced too.
So, I acquired a handful of these, thus:
- Emerald Green
- Deep Sea
- Bondi Blue
- Fire Engine Red
- Yellow Sunset
In the following short reviews the writing samples are created using an Osmiroid B4 italic nib and an Esterbrook 2048 fitted to a standard XT Esterbrook dip-less pen holder.
All writing is by dipping. More time is needed to discover how these inks behave in cartridges, converters or eyedroppers.
Swabs and comparisons with other inks will be provided later in the week – I’m all out of Q-tips!
Ah, it's the end of another summer's day...
Some nice shading here, though I am not sure if it has the range or depth of Noodler's Apache Sunset - the comparison is inevitable. Average dry times on my Rhodia pad. As I was writing the script I was wondering if this was really my thing. After it was on the page for a while I find I quite like it. It will be interesting to try it on off-white or other coloured papers. And of course there is Tomoe River to think of!
