Today's ink is Robert Oster Lemon Grass. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens. Lemon Grass is available in 50ml bottles. I had the lettering all done for this post, and then my three year old decided to dump some water on it, so I had to re-do it. Luckily I had enough ink since I accidentally bought two samples of this ink.
Lemon Grass is a medium-dark green.
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 20 pound copy paper there was some feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
I used a broad Pelikan Ocean Swirl on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
I have noticed that I get the most shading out of inks by using a western medium/japanese broad nib and printing instead of doing cursive. Since I used a Pelikan broad nib, which is really wet, there isn't as much shading as there could be in a slightly drier nib.
