Our first 3 Oysters inks today is Black Moss from the Delicious collection. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Black Moss is a dark green-black.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of black sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in all nib sizes and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Black Moss is closest to Birmingham Gibson Field, but they aren’t a great match. Click here to see the 3 Oysters inks together.
Overall, it’s an interesting color, and better behaved than most of the 3 Oysters inks I’ve tried in the last week.
