EFNIR: Papier Plume Oyster Grey

Extra Fine Nib Ink Review: Papier Plume Oyster Grey


This is review #106 in my series.  Here's the YouTube video:


Post-recording notes: The zoom image has pretty good color reproduction.  The rest are all iffy.  Cleaning was quick and easy with plain water.


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

Thank you Liz - excellent review as always :)

 

I love this ink - actually I've yet to meet a Papier Plume ink I didn't love, so extra thanks for giving it a moment in the spotlight.

You're very welcome!  And thank you.  This is the first Papier Plume ink I've used, and the only one currently in my possession.  I'm sure eventually I'll get to others, but it could be a long time (since I've currently got enough inks to do reviews until September of next year).

Great job, Liz as usual 👍

 

It's funny how this and the De Atramentis look similar with EF nib. Though this one leaves me, grey/ grey ;) must be the day....

I thought Marsell was captured by the other wizards... did he slip away?

This is an unfortunate side effect of photographing the EF lines - the camera just won't pick up differences.  I can see the difference very clearly with my eyes - DAD Urban Grey is very warm compared to PP Oyster Grey, which is very clearly bluish.

Yes, back in review 84, Pilot Mixable Colour Pink, Marsell used magic to escape immediately after he was captured, before they even left the big sphinx - this was one of Primus' motives for kicking Quintus out.  In 89, Colorverse Extra Dimension, Quin announced his intent to use a magic portal to travel to Bicbiro. In 91, Organics Studio Walt Whitman Leaves of Grass Dark Green, Quin informed Makhabesh of his intent to track down and re-capture Marsell.

Does this grey/gray have a slight green cast in the Bad Paper Pics?

Yes, and even in real life, there are times when the bluish cast seems to have a slight greenish tint, but when I cleaned, I only saw blue in the water, not green.  I should probably do a chromatography strip or something...

Seems to be an overall nice color with good behavior.  Thanks for the review!

Yes, I quite like the color, and it behaved itself well.  You're very welcome! :)

I see you're well on top of everything... ;)

Once I realized this whole Quin and Makhabesh thing was turning into an ongoing story, I made a text file with each episode so that I could write several (future) episodes at a time, and look up what happened previously (should I forget).  And I note the review I use the episode in, so it's pretty easy for me to go back and find exactly what happened where.

Great, simply great!

While previously I didn't focus too much on the content of your text - from now on, I'm looking forward to action, drama, and complicated riddles!

Please, bring the story to us!

 

Greetings from your highly entertained auditory :)

One life!

:D  I'm afraid I'm no good with riddles, so they'll just have to be hinted at in the story line, but I've taken the hint and added an article to my website: The Adventures of Quin and Makhabesh - which I'll have to update each time I post.

Thanks for the review. Looks like a nice grey. I love greys that wander away from the neutral path, so I’m sure a bluish-grey will be to my liking. I actually got a small bottle of this when I ordered Iron Lace from the New Orleans series, but haven’t gotten around to using it yet. I’m going to give it a try soon.

Hope you enjoy it!  I would guess that it would make interesting colors in inky-art, but I haven't done the chromatography to test that theory.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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.
    • A Smug Dill
      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
    • Daneaxe
      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
