Ink Review #98: Organics Studio Potassium Lavender

OSPotassiumLavender - 6.jpg

Organics Studio Potassium Lavender is a new-ish color from the Organics Studio Elements line. Quick side note: I did the lettering pictured above using a Caran d'Ache fiber tipped water brush-I'm 100% in love with it, because it's amazing. I got my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet

The bottle:

It holds 55ml of ink, and the ink is handmade in Maryland. Yay for US made.

The color...

I'm gonna call this color almost a periwinkle. It's a purple with blue in it.

When I first switched this ink I was wasn't sure about it, but the more I played with it, the more I started to love it.

This ink really reminds me of Robert Oster Evening Sapphire, which I'm obsessed with. Potassium Lavender just has a little more purple to it, but they have similar tones to them. 

Dry time: 40 seconds

Water resistance: low

Feathering: None

Show through: low to medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: Medium shading, and a tiny bit of dark purple sheen

Longer writing:

I used a broad Vanishing Point on Original Crown Mill stationery. 

Pros: I actually really love the color-it's a pretty unique color. It's really well behaved, and has some decent shading.

Cons: The dry time is a bit long.

Overall, I'm super glad I have a whole bottle of this ink, because I will use it all.
