Only my second experience with a RO ink!

This is a moderately thick, saturated turquoise that exhibits good shading, decent flow, but slightly problematic dry time for southpaws. I like it anyway. It also makes a good drawing ink, especially in an italic nib.

Thanks once again to amberleadavis for the PIF!

The chroma twins show some separation into greens and blues. Which makes sense...it's turquoise!

Lovely colour. I like your succulent review, to the point :)

I'm not a fan of eternally smudge-able (if such a word even exists!) inks. 

 

I'm an underwriter lefty so if it dries in less than 30 seconds, I'm fine. 

Though nowadays all I care is water resistance and from what Know Oster's inks are rarely if ever water resistant ....

@Sailor, I'm really glad you are enjoying the ink!


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
