Today we are kicking off yellow ink week with Robert Oster Yellow Sunrise. I purchased my sample of ink from Anderson Pens.

The color:

Yellow Sunrise ranges from bright yellow to a yellow-orange.

In large swabs, there is some interesting shading but no sheen.

Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.

Dry time: 30 seconds

Water resistance: Low

Feathering: None.

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: Low-there was a little bit of bleeding in the flex nib on Tomoe River paper.

Other properties: Medium shading, no sheen, and no shimmer

On 20 pound copy paper the ink behaved well, no issues that I noticed.

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Robert Oster Yellow Sunset, Robert Oster Yellow Sunrise, and Robert Oster Aussie Gold. Click here to see the Robert Oster inks together.

Longer writing: 

I used a Pilot 912 FA and a broad Pilot Vanishing Point on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.

Overall, it's an interesting color. I'm not usually crazy about yellow inks since they can be really hard to read, but I think this one does ok. I like that it has some nice shading. Give it a try, you might love it.
