Organics Studio is an ink that I have heard more bad than good about. Stories of sediment, dryness, and iffy quality. Despite this when I saw a photo of the sheen that comes off their color Nitrogen, I had to have a bottle. Unfortunately it was sold out everywhere for a while, it was almost as elusive as some Japanese inks that I’ve had to chase. But a fateful day last week I received an email from Vanness saying that the color was back in stock!
For this review I decided to ink up my Pelikan M205, F nib. I trusted that the sheen would be insane, so an F nib would be fine ^_^.
That sheen tho! The time-lapse is definitely worth checking out. The change from blue to that gorgeous red sheen is dramatic! It has a nice flow, great saturation, and medium shading which doesn’t bother me because #sheen. The only thing that I will say I didn’t care for was the long dry time coupled with the “stickiness” that sometimes comes with large amounts of sheen. I smeared a bit while doing the InkJournal entry, moreso than with other inks. I highly recommend trying this ink if you like sheen though! I’m going to stock up on this one!
I leave you now with a photo of the latest Hippo Noto color mock-up, forest green!
