I don't usually like orange inks, but Robert Oster keeps changing my mind. Today's orange is Robert Oster Red Orange. You can find samples of this ink here, or bottles here at Goulet Pens.

The color...

Red Orange is a bright orange with shading. Seasonally, I would use this ink in the fall.

Red Orange is one of those inks that almost looks fuzzy and black on the edges when concentrated.

Dry time: Red Orange dried in 30 seconds.

Water Resistance: Red Orange is not water resistant.

Feathering: Red Orange feathered a bit on Baron Fig paper, but did well on the other papers.

Show through: Red Orange had low to medium show through on all of the papers.

Bleeding: Red Orange only bled on Baron Fig paper, but did well on the other papers. 

Other properties: Red Orange had no sheen, and medium shading

Longer writing:

I used a broad Vanishing Point Twilight on Tomoe River. The ink actually seemed just a bit dry.

Overall, I think this ink is very similar to Robert Oster Terracotta. This ink behaves pretty well, and has some great shading.
