Continuing with the Robert Oster inks I've been reviewing lately, today is Robert Oster Ng Special 16. As soon as I swatched it, it immediately reminded me of Robert Oster Peach, which I love, so let's take a look at it. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Ng Special 16 is a bright, light orange with shading.
The ink drops show off the ink's shading-it ranges from a nice light orange to a dark pumpkin color. Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on nice paper first.
Dry time: 32 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: low-medium
On Moleskine paper, which is not known for being fountain pen friendly, there was a tiny bit of feathering, and some bleeding. The ink did ok, but it's not one I would recommend for cheap paper.
I used a broad Pilot Vanishing Point on Tomoe River paper, and I really loved the combo. The ink was just a little bit wet and had a nice flow.
Overall, I really like this ink. It has some great shading, and is nice and bright. This one is going on my list of inks I need a full bottle of.
