Ink Review #243: Robert Oster Green Green


We are still in the middle of green week, so today's ink is Robert Oster Green Green. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens. Green Green is available in 50ml bottles.


The color:

Green green is a medium bright green.


When the ink is pooled it turns black around the edges, but it isn't sheen. I have found that a lot of Robert Oster's green inks do this, especially the medium and lighter greens.


Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 15 seconds

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: Medium shading, no sheen, and no shimmer

On 20 pound copy paper there was some feathering but other than that the ink behaved well. 

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Toucan Bright Green, Robert Oster Green Green, and Robert Oster Green Lime. Click here to see the Robert Oster inks together.


Longer writing: 

I used a medium Pelikan White Transparent on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. 


Overall, it's a lovely ink. Robert Oster makes some wonderful green inks. Give it a try, you might love it.
