I'm still obsessed with Robert Oster inks. The brand is amazing. There are so many different colors, and so many of them have shading and sheen that I just can't help myself, I gotta try them all. So today-Robert Oster Orange. You gotta have oranges in fall, am I right?? I got my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Orange is well...orange. It's a little bit on the red-orange side.
The ink has a good consistency. The ink drops show a little bit of shading.
Dry time: 25 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: low-medium
Longer writing: I tested this ink on Original Crown Mill stationery, which is a cream and Navy laid stationery. I started out using a Pilot 912 FA nib, but because of the laid finish of the paper, there was a lot of railroading and hard starts. I switched over to a medium nib, and it flowed a lot better.
What I like: I like the shading and the little bit of sheen. Robert Oster does a great job with consistency in his inks.
What I don't like: the railroading on the stationery paper, but I think that's the paper's fault, not the ink's.
Overall, I would buy a bottle of this ink. Right now I just have a sample, so it's going on my to purchase list.
