Fellow FPN-er inkantadora (who regularly organises Paris pen meets) discovered sometime ago that the Korean fountain pen ink maker 3Oysters created a collection for the Korean art collective Studio Flaverse. These inks were created to complement an art collection inspired by the “witches” of Greek mythology. Studio Flaverse was inspired by the darker side of the stories of Hera, Pandora, Medusa and Arachne. She was fascinated by the concept and the inks, so she got in touch with Studio Flaverse and was sent a set of four inks for review purpose. These inks were (or will be?) part of a Korean kickstarter campaign (Tumblbug). Many thanks to Inkantadora who kindly shared samples of these inks with me to try. (Introductory text above adapted from inkantadora's Instagram page with her consent. Click the above link for a photo of the artwork and bottles of these inks.)
 
 
Pandora is a lovely blurple that writes very wet and smooth. I like it. I have nothing to complain about in terms of behaviour.

Comparison

 

(Colour-wise I think it is very close to Diamine Bilberry.)

Thank you for the review. Pandora is remarkably close to Diamine Bilberry (which I have not tried yet). Are they also similar in terms of texture?

The Diamine might be a bit more viscous, thicker? Just an impression. I'll get you a sample!

Ooooh....

Be still my heart -- could this be the ink I've been searching for? :wub:   A better behaved version of Noodler's Kung Te Cheng?  Looks like another sample to add to the "need to get" spreadsheet.  

Thanks for the review -- and, well, not....

I like the Pandora as well. Do I detect a hint of brown in the Arachne?

I have no idea where/whether we can buy these witch inks. Inkantadora might know.

I think they're still in a "kickstart" state and not yet readily available. Let me ask inkantadora.

There is a touch of brown in Arachne. Its lovely warm grey. Easily my favorite of the set.
