Organics Studio Lab Series #20

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I was reading a review here on an Organics Studio ink and out of curiosity went to their site. I found their main lineup of inks pretty standard color-wise and I had those color ranges already covered but then I found this page. These are a series of ink colors Tyler is testing on whoever wants to purchase and explore them. I guess colors that sell well or something get made into the main line. I ended up picking #5, #18 and #20. This is a review for #20.




This is a grey blue that behaves quite wonderfully, the tone is muted and it makes a wonderful choice if you're looking for something in the middle of black and blue. The closest ink I have to this one is R+K Verdigris, which exhibits a lot more green. Like verdigris this is a juicy ink with good flow, but Verdigris does have more dramatic shading. Water test consisted of water droplets that were wiped after 10 seconds or so. Your writing will survive a spill but I don't know if they'll do for submersion. On the Rhodia Reverse Book the ink takes about 25 seconds to dry, about standard for a lot of my inks on this particular paper. I recommend this ink heartily and if this doesn't make it into production I would love to know of other shades like this for future reference.



Photos were taken outside in the shade and calibrated to the actual page in front of me. You can also view the sample of the color on their site for comparison if you want a second opinion. If there's interest I'd be happy to review the other two inks.

I unfortunately can't see the review from behind the work firewall, but the idea of testing colors in the market is very intriguing. Looking forward to getting home and checking out the pictures - thanks for reviewing!

Thank you for this stunning review!

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

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
