I love magenta inks-I don’t know why since I’m not normally crazy about pink but magenta pinks are lovely. Let’s take a look at Robert Oster Hot Pink. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet. When I first tried this ink I thought it was much warmer. It’s warmer when wet and cools down a bit as it dries.
Hot Pink is a medium pink, almost magenta.
In large swabs the ink has some pretty shading.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper the ink feathered in all nib sizes and had a little bit of bleeding.
I used a TWSBI Eco Blossom Red with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, this is a really nice magenta pink. It has a nice flow, great color, and well behaved. It’s a win for me.
