I finished a fill of Deep Sea just yesterday evening. I have marked it as one of my favourite Robert Oster inks, among the half dozen I have from his catalogue of billions and billions. I find it better on paper than I am seeing here on the monitor, though the colour is true enough.

Deep Sea's a favourite of mine too. Deep, beautiful colour, well behaved ink.

However no water resistance at all.

 

To add to Jan2016's review, I had posted this in the 'art gallery' thread some time back - all done with Deep Sea. It shows how the ink behaves on drawing paper, in pen (Delta M 'fusion' nib) and on brush - pure and diluted.

I didn't have time to do Fire and Ice but it is on the list. Now with the holidays coming I am a little bit short on time, but my next review I will do the Fire and Ice.

Great, Thanks. I have the Fire and Ice so I am interested to see how they compare. I have noticed Robert Oster makes several inks that have twins like Bondi Blue and Blue Water Ice.

Nice artwork!

 

Too much green on the blue for me, though... Or is it too much blue on the green? Oh well.

 

Thanks for another nice review, love them!

I really like the look of this. Never had an Oster ink before so I feel a purchase coming imminently.

      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
