So stepping outside my comfort zone just a tad to review this amazing blue! I was inspired by a post on the FPN FB that featured this color. I had never tried a Robert Oster ink before so this was an adventure!
I ordered it from Vanness for $16.00. I ordered some other things as well so the shipping was free. I have a lot of friends in Australia (because I’m lucky enough to be married to an Aussie ^_^) where this ink is made so I wondered if there would be a huge discount ordering directly from an Aussie store, but with the shipping factor it seems it would have come out the same.
The packaging I was a little confused about. When other people have posted about this ink it comes in a fabulous gold looking wrapping with the Robert Oster gold sticker on it. But mine came in a plastic bag, not too exciting. The bottle is of the hard plastic type and is of the tall variety.
This ink exceeded all of my expectations. It has a great flow, nice shading, and even a sheen! The sheen is of the red variety and isn’t overpowering. Since I can finally upload videos here are some of how the ink flows on both tomoe and CF paper. Excuse the inky fingers!
Of course I have also done my standard Ink Journal entry ^_^
Overall very please and will definitely be getting more Robert Oster ink in soon, in fact should be this week… lol! 🖋💕
