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.

I've reviewed Pandora here.


Hera is a fairly saturated brownish red. Those of you who know my distaste for Diamine Red Dragon will know that I'm not fond of the yellow greenish tint in Red Dragon while the ink is still fresh. Hera does the same thing. There's a yellow greenish undertone to this ink especially when it's still wet that really irks me. It dries to a brownish red that looks somewhat brick-y, or dried blood-y. I'm not a fan of this colour, but I'm sure many of you will love it.


Hera writes very smooth and wet. It even makes my scratchy Nakaya nib feel so smooth. Somewhat water resistant.
