Robert Oster Pacific Ocean Teal was exclusive to the San Francisco Pen show this year, and I was not able to attend so a friend picked me up a bottle and shipped it to me. The bottle is the standard RO 50ml bottle.
Pacific Ocean Teal is a light teal, it is almost a blue, but there is a bit of green in there.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of pink sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, and some bleeding in all nib sizes.
Overall, it’s a lovely ink. It is close to some of Robert Oster’s other colors, but still behaves well.
