Robert Oster Spearmint

Recommended Posts

The third of the Robert Oster ink samples I received is this green. When it comes to green, normally I like muted greens, so I was a bit surprised when I worked this review of a non-murky green and decided I liked it quite a bit. This isn't a bright green, and it leans distinctly blue. I keep thinking of it a summer grass green, the color of American grass in the warmth of summer. Spearmint is certainly another good name as the color is probably fairly close to that of the leaves of that plant.

 

Pen: Pelikan M400 (14kt-F)

Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet

 

This Pelikan is quite a wet nib, so it left quite a bit of ink on the paper. But there wasn't any bleed through. Quite shady, delicately. Lots of red sheen on Tomoe River.

Not water resistant. Blotting lifts much of the ink. A wash spreads the heavy dye load all over.

I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. It's a nice ink. Your reviews are wonderful, thank you.

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

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
