The color is somewhere in between a dark grey and dark blue. It has more blue tones compared to a typical gray ink but also it is less blue compared to most blue-black inks. So far this ink has proven to write very well with good ink flow and has a nice antique look. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vXFZuRCJGoc/VMTB387Pn9I/AAAAAAAAAi4/pbKgzL_cjg0/s1600/Blu
  2. As most of you know Organics Studio will be coming back with some of their inks. Nautilus Blue didn't make it and won't be resurrected. So at the moment you may consider this one unobtainable ink. I won't miss it though. It's decent blue ink but when it comes to blue inks there are dozens of them and Jules Verne Nautilus Blue doesn't stand out in any way. Just another blue in the sea of blue. http://imageshack.com/a/img661/7218/PxxPbi.jpg DROPS OF INK ON KITCHEN TOWEL http://imageshack.com/a/img661/7748/fvoHJ6.jpg SOFTWARE IDENTIFICATION / COLOR RANGE
  3. Here is my review of the OS Teddy Roosevelt Midnights' Blue. This ink was a special edition for a pen show I think, and Anderson pens had some extra OS, so I picked up a bottle. I don't think it's available at all any longer. The label color bar looked like a deep dark blue, and I love those kinds of colors. The ink is quite far from deep, dark blue, and much closer to OS Mark Twain Halley's Comet. This ink is a bit more muted in tone than the Mark Twain. On Moleskine, I originally didn't like it as the color came out too pale, but it's certainly usable and not bad looking. On the better pa

    Copper Turquoise - Organics Studio

    As most of you know Organics Studio will be coming back with some of their inks. Copper Turquoise didn't make it and won't be resurrected. I don' really care as I dislike this color.

  7. This is one of the White Box inks. I think there are a few bottles left at Anderson Pens. Still no scanner, so you get bad photos instead. Genghis is a strange ink. It is wetter than the other White Box inks, thank goodness, though the flow was uneven - if I paused, the next word was way darker. The color is a kind of a weathered coral-rose color that is weird. I keep going back and forth on whether I like it. If you drip a little in water, it doesn't disperse normally. Instead it forms little filamentous drops. These don't seem to be actually filaments, nor did I have any trouble washin

    Epic Ink Test

    This is the second round of ink testing that I am doing - the first is already three months in and you can find those posts on my blog. I figured that for this one I would start from the beginning on here and post updates as I go along. Eek! I am so excited about this. After taking nearly a month to fill up a new page full of inks (partly because I went on vacation for a week), it’s finally ready: As with my first epic ink test, I will have four tests running in parallel: a control which will be kept in a plastic sleeve in a notebook, an ambient light test which will hang on my frid
  9. Golden Mind is one of the White Box inks, and is available from Anderson Pens in a very limited quantity. In case you're on the fence, here is a quick look. In summary, I really like the color. If you like dryish ink, take a look. It doesn't feel wet enough for me, but I prefer wet pens and wet inks. It's a dead ringer for Diamine Marigold, and has zero water resistance. It washes as a uniform color, so might be useful for a wash. Sorry for the photos. I didn't want to wait until I got my new scanner, in case anyone was on the fence.

  10. And yet another review while I'm going. Forgive me posting all these at once, but I've been sitting on a stack of these for a couple weeks and finally had the time to scan them in this weekend. This is another Organics Studio ink. And another one that has almost no information up yet. No reviews and no sample pictures on the sites that are selling them. Also another one I'd been excited about, since this one is a pigment based ink. Should make it more permanent. Water resistant and fade resistant. It's a nice vibrant color with nice shading. It flows wetter than I thought, and dri

    Blue Merle - Organics Studio

    Blue mMerle is supposed to be Blue / Black. For me it's more Grey / Blue. Anyway I like the vintage feel about this ink. I read that Organics Studio owner tried to recreate some old Carter's recipe. He's named the ink after - I believe - his dog Ernest (called after his favourite writer - Ernest Hemingway).

    Organics Studio Is Discontinued

    Hi FPN'ers, Just wanted to let you all know that Organics Studio is discontinued. Tyler (the creator) has decided to take a break from ink manufacturing to focus on his graduate studies. We know it was a hard decision, and we certainly wish him the best! That said, all Organics Studio inks are now on closeout here at Goulet Pens. We were fortunate to snag the last remaining stock, so what we have is all that's left.

    Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe

    I’m trying out a new format for doing ink reviews. I like this because I feel like it’s a bit more thorough and well organized, without losing individuality. Let me know what you think… Don’t worry if some of that is too small to read, I’ll be posting close ups of each section. This is another ink that falls in the category of “like, but don’t love.” The color definitely looks like a washed out Black Swan in English Roses, which is not necessarily a bad thing. If I had to choose between the two, I would actually take this one because it’s slightly less morbid. I also enjoy the

    Has anyone else gotten a bottle or sample of this. I was so smitten by the name and swap I didn't get a sample first (gasp). [attachment=251456:13890258362_be83b79859_z.jpg] I'm hoping the picture shows....this time...

    Organics Studio Gregor Mendel

    Alright, this is an ink that I meant to review long ago and then because of some sad tech confusion it didn’t happen. But, now it’s ready, perhaps a bit too late. Yesterday there was a post on the Organics Studio Facebook page saying that they are discontinuing Gregor Mendel, so all that’s left is what’s out there… This ink is really neat. It’s colored using chlorophyll, which is the same thing that makes plants green. It’s also a pigmented ink, which makes it very water resistant, as you can see above. On the other hand, this is a far less saturated ink than some other modern ones
  17. These are my first ink reviews so I'd like to hear all suggestions how to improve them. I've got quite some inks in my collection already (most of them are samples but it's a start) and I will review some more in the future.

    Arsenic - Organics Studio

    Hi, I'd like to present you another review that I've made for polish fountain pen forum - that's why the text is not written in english. I'd love to prepare new scans (in english this time) but I don't have time. Anyway, I hope at least some of you will find it useful even tough you won't - probably - understand the text as polish is not the most popular language to learn But then I believe the colors have language of their own. I've received Arsenic sample from Cyber6. Yhank you very much. INK SPLASH ON CHEAP COPY PAPER http://imageshack.com/a/img602/187/08e830.jpg FEW FROPS OF

    Organics Studio - Join Or Die

    Time to give a bit of love to a small ink manufacturer, Organics Studio. From what I can tell, it’s a bit of a one man band, and I do so love supporting smaller businesses when I can. I tried another OS ink as well, but that was when my computer was broken and I didn’t get a scan before doing a water test and somehow I lost the picture I took of the original page, so I will have to just redo that one later. I think I still have enough left in my sample to fill a pen… Anyway, Join or Die is part of the “Sepia” line of inks, and I suppose I would be willing to call it a greenish sort of

    Inky Learning Curve

    I test my inks in a notebook using a dip pen. But now I'm realizing that I need to also test them in pens before I jump in and buy some. I bought a fine black Preppy at the Chicago Pen Show and decided to fill it with Organics Studio's HMS Beagle. Bad decision. Right away the lines it was making were very wide and the pen was leaking ink practically onto the paper. Of course I have a whole bottle of it. Obviously the Preppy was the wrong pen for it. I turned around 180* and cleaned and filled the Preppy with Noodlers KTC. So far it's behaving itself quite well, but give it time. No
  21. http://yoonhalee.com/images-inks/os-poe.png NOTE: I have since discovered that this ink tends to make my red Parker Vac a hard starter if allowed to sit more than a day--the issue seems to be that the Vac has a nib creepy nib and the ink dries up into red-brown cruft and makes it hard to write. Cleaning the nib takes care of the problem (until next time). This is a writing sample with the same ink I did for my Nakaya Naka-ai with a cursive italic, so you can see how the ink looks in an italic nib. I had no starting/flow problems in the Nakaya, which does not really display nib creep. h

    Organics Studio Charles Darwin Black

    So this ink has picked up a little bit of notice for being insanely fast-drying. I mean insanely. You can't smear this ink. Don't even try. You'll just disappoint yourself. It's also very nicely water resistant. It has a matte texture to it. No glossiness. Just pitch dark color. That said, there are tradeoffs for this ink. It soaks into the paper so quickly (even rhodia) that there will be bleed through. I'm not the sort of person to be bothered by showthrough. But it bleeds. I used a fine-tipped pen for this review. The pen runs a little wide (thanks Lamy) and it's got a wet-i
  23. Inker's note: When I say 'about' I mean 'this is a guesstimate'. I've just gotten my ink experimentation supplies in, so I want to put up my attempts to create a smoother, low-shading version of OS Manganate. Hopefully this is helpful or interesting to someone, or at the very least means other people don't need to repeat so many tries. 1st try, more !!SCIENCE!! than scientific; 1 drop of Cascade Rinse Agent in about 3 mL of Manganate. Turned out much darker, looked beautiful, but also had a stupidly long dry time. 2nd try: Added about 2 mL to the earlier experiment. Ink now looks like ol

    Organics Studio Potassium Lavender

    This one really goes hand-in-hand with the review I had posted of OS Mark Twain. They are color-cousins. Maybe more like siblings. This color looks to my eyes to be a very similar hue as Mark Twain, just lighter and with less shading. Overall Impressions: It's a light dusty purple color. Appropriately titled a lavender. It has a good flow in the pen. There's some decent shading. Not much water resistance. Since Mark Twain came out, though, I can't see someone needing both inks. I like Mark Twain better, but that'd be personal preference. My suggestion, figure out which of these

    Organics Studio Pendleton's Blakwa

    Here's BlaKWa. Really nice color. It's a teal sort of ink similar in color to Iroshizuku Ku Jaku or Diamine Eau De Nil. I think it's actually reaaallly close to Eau De Nil if memory serves. Eau de Nil was just a little darker than Ku Jaku, just a tiny bit less vibrant, which matches what I'm seeing here. Sadly, I ran out of my sample of Eau de Nil, so can't provide an explicit side-by-side right now. I have a bottle of Ku Jaku so I can compare those at least. Very good behavior. Could go on the list for an alternative to Ku Jaku for a lot of people who don't want to spend the $30 on
