Hello folks

Just saw this sample kit at Fountainfeder.de, the "Robert Oster MudPack"

Is that murky enough ? 😁

Looking here I'd say no.

The swatch images that Oster does of his inks are mostly pretty useless. He definitely has a talent for creating colors so the disconnect between those images and what his inks actually look like is a bit hard to understand.

Script nib for writing screenplays. • Fine nib for my best writing. • Extra fine for my *very* best writing. • Medium for requesting a séance. • Bold for adventure stories. • Manifold for many various types of writing. • Coarse for indignant letters. • Oblique for making a point in a roundabout way. • Stub for when I intend to leave a manuscript unfinis ...

I think this grey that I am not re-imagining as green belongs here.  Move it to grey or green if you think if is more appropriate.  Iro kiri-same:

That is really odd. My kiri-same looks NOTHING like this. It's a slightly warm grey without even a hint of green.

This is not what I recalled it looking like either, but I had previously used it only in much finer nibs.

 

I wonder if the heat from my stove could have altered it's composition... I haven't used the bottle in a bit but it's a pretty full bottle.  I'll try another pen later and see what happens.  Since this was a dip test, I wrote until the ink ran dry.

Well... At least it is murky.

 

Freaky... but murky.

So more murky evidence.  I think that somehow, even though the pen was flushed and ran clear, and I was only du-testing, there must have been some residual ink in the feed.  Here's from the same bottle, albeit in a much narrower nib, I wrote M on the paper, but it's an F.  I'm not thinking clearly this week, apologies.

 

 

 

Murky circumstances indeed!

It's really surprising how easy it is for ink in the feed to avoid the cleaning process - it's like there are secret alleyways and abandoned buildings to which it flees whenever water or pen flush shows up.  I've found that letting the bulb syringe suck water in through the nib & feed, as well as expel it, and then letting a paper towel wick water out (I deliberately fill the back end of the section with water after wrapping the nib and feed in paper towel) helps significantly.

I actually use a bulb syringe, which is why I don't expect there to be ink in my clean feeds!  Love your alleyways analogy above; I have not tried the paper towel trick and will do so my next fill!  Thanks.  

 

Now I wonder what ink that was... or if it became a mixture and that's why it matched the lines on the paper so perfectly.  Not a color I would normally use.
