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.)

 

I've reviewed Pandora here and Hera here.

 

Medusa is one of those blue-leaning green inks that should appeal to many but not me. Just not my kind of green.

 

It shows a red sheen on Col-o-ring splash cards (thanks HalloweenHJB!) but not really visible in writing on Rhodia paper. It's kind of noticeable on Tomoe River but not overtly so. This ink writes very wet and smooth. It's somewhat water resistant.

Comparison

(Aventurine is already a tad too blue for my liking. Medusa is even bluer than it.)

Interesting.  Medusa looks like the flip version of (original) Sailor Jentle Grenade (which is dark red with green shading and sheen).

Think Medusa is a little blue leaning a green for my taste.  But thanks for the review.
