It's the first day of green week! This week is focused on all things green and inky, so today's ink is Robert Oster Moss. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Moss is a dark green, and well, mossy.
When the ink is pooled it turns black around the edges, but it isn't sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 25 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On 20 pound copy paper there was quite a bit of feathering but other than that the ink behaved well.
I used a broad Pelikan M805 Ocean Swirl on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow. There weren't any flow issues.
Overall, it's pretty well behaved, like most of Robert Oster's inks. The color isn't my favorite, I think there are lots of other Robert Oster inks out there that I like better. Give it a try, you might love it.
