Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Robert Oster Heart of Gold


This is review #71 in my series.  Here's the YouTube video:


Post-recording notes: In real life, the color looks a little brighter and more yellow than the zoom photo.  Also, there's more glitter than the photo shows, but shifting the light so the glitter sparkled also made the color less accurate, so I went with something in between.  Cleaning was mostly quick and easy, but some glitter decided to cling to the feed, so I threw it into the sonicator, where one cycle did the job.  In normal use, the next ink would surely have flushed the glitter out unnoticed.


And here is a screen of the final result, for those not interested in the video:

Lovely review LIz. 

The quote was priceless :)

II have a feeling that you need to turn Quintus' adventures into a comic book ;)

Thank you! :)

 

Maya Angelou has said some things worth repeating.

 

If I could draw worth a darn, I might.  Maybe I could convince @Tas to do the drawing part. ;) We'd have Stick-Quintus and Stick-Makhabesh :D  (Don't ask me what a stick-sphinx looks like, but I did discover he has wings - not all sphinxes do, you know - and he's a he, which counters the original sphinx, but otherwise, he's "normal" (for a sphinx) - lion body, person head - just very small.)

Great choice.

Tas has the gift to make anything look nice :);)

I love that kind of color...it seems like old ink in some vintage papers or documents...

Not necessary some old text has "glitter" made of solid gold or silver dust to be precise...Medieval times I refer..you can see .. there's nothing new under the sun...

Good point.  Of course, it had a fancier name, I'm sure, but yeah, I'd forgotten about illuminated manuscripts.  Thanks for the reminder!

Always fun to watch your reviews.  Pretty color, but.....

 

GLITTER!  NOOOOOO!

 

😱

:D  If it makes you feel any better, the next 3 reviews are not glitter inks, and it appears I only have 2 glitter inks left, neither of which is near the top of the list of "next inks" - though that could change overnight, based on historical voting trends... :)

Surprisingly readable for a gold-toned ink. I like the colour, but glitter... no thanks. 

The base color is not that different from R.O. Gold Antiqua, actually. :)  So you could just get that.

I *love* this ink. Looks like liquid gold on the page, especially when it's drying. Wrote my Christmas cards with it in a flex pen. Thanks for the EF review- I may try it yet in a finer nib pen...

You're very welcome!  And yes, this would be a good ink for Christmas cards. :)

This strikes me as an appropriate use of shimmer.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.
