We are going to get through some of the 3 Oysters inks today, let’s start the day off with Chili Red from the Delicious collection. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a sample over for review.
Chili Red is a bright, vibrant red.
In large swabs the ink looks less vibrant, more subdued.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 90 seconds-this ink takes a LONG time to fully dry.
Water resistance: Medium
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering in all nib sizes and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Chili Red is closest to Robert Oster Fire Engine Red. Click here to see the 3 Oysters inks together.
Overall, this ink is drier than I like, and takes a LONG time to dry. It’s not an ink I need a full bottle of, but I really like the color.
