3 Oysters Mustard Review

Recommended Posts

3Oysters (or 3 Oysters? who knows) is a Korean ink company. Mustard is part of their Delicious line, which come in 38mL cube-ish bottles that have a corner missing, so as to allow you to tip the bottle over and refill better. Or so they say, anyway - I wouldn't know, because this is from a sample from the generous amberleadavis. Thank you, Amber!

 

This ink is a delightful dark mustardy yellow brown. I noticed that is seemed to "soak in" to papers a bit more compared to the average ink. I think I will save this to use on TR and such for the nice crisp halo.

 

Bleeding: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly

Dry time: Nothing out of the ordinary.

Feathering: A bit more than average on bad paper; see the "soaking in" comment, but none on fp-friendly
Haloing: Yes, and beautifully so, but not in a fine nib on moderately good paper

Lubrication: Less than average
Saturation: Average

Shading: Very much.
Sheen: None whatsoever
Smudging: None when dry
Water Resistance: Surprisingly, a bit survived after contact with some droplets, but don't bank on it.

Wetness: Average

Closeups: You can see here some weird white-ish spots in the text, making it look a bit chalky. These are present under magnification but really difficult to see in real life.

Thank you for taking the time to do this.

 

I must admit, I am not very fond of the color.

Beautiful and accurate color reproduction in the closeup photos. Much more eloquent than scans.

 

I think we can safely deduct that the lower the lubrication the higher the shading.

I do hope that's not universal! I love shading and it'd a shame that many crazy shaders are a bit less pleasant to write with.

Interesting color, but it looks as if it may be too light to be legible unless it's with a broader nib.
