Robert Oster Summer Storm


Recommended Posts

Summer Storm doesn't get a lot of love, but if you're looking for a blue-grey (with a slight emphasis on the blue), you might consider it. Personally, I really enjoy it, but I like blue-greys, so I am biased in that. It behaves well, although it is on the dry side. It's dark enough to read without turning into black (a pet peeve). This isn't the perfect grey, but it's a nice color.

LOL.. This is my daughter's favourite ink.... She is 17 and enjoys sketching with it like you have no idea... :D


I personally think you need a broad wet nib to make it shine as a writing ink... But what do I know... I started using reading glasses a few months ago... :bawl: :bawl:



This is a gorgeous ink and a FANTASTIC ink if you are artistically inclined... :wub: :wub:

That does look interesting. Of course, it also looks a bit like Noodler's Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham on my screen (which may be *why* it's attracting me...).

Thanks of rhe review. I have a sample of this which I haven't tried yet, so if looks as if I might have to think about sooner rather than later.

Normally I agree with another member that describes the color rather than some fanciful name that tells me nothing but this time I digress. Summer Storm does recall memories of an impending summer storm and all that it portends and the color of the ink conveys those feelings by replicating the color of the sky.

Thank you for a nice review. Summer Storm on my short list

      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

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
