On Robert Oster's shop website Australian Sky Blue is described as follows: "Australian Sky Blue flows on like a turquoise, dries on with all of the character and beauty of the wide Australian sky".



I'm not really into turquoises / bright blue turquoises so I dislike the color. The ink behaves well but I believe it may be too light, especially in drier pens.

I have Sky Blue & agree it's quite a light colour. But it doesn't seem dry to me & I think it's very pretty. Looks very good on Graphilo paper.

Vis, I love your work.

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