    Ink Shot Review: @RobertOsterInk Australian Opal Mauve @NoteMakerTweets

    Notemaker was on the hunt for a new Robert Oster ink to add to their stock, and in a vote for popular colors, Peppermint was one of the favorites, but Australian Opal Mauve came in a close second. Let's take a look!

    PROS
    • Beautiful purple - legible in finer nibs and really nice in wider nibs! 
    • Easy to fill from bottle.
    • Really nice as a color wash.
    • Easy to clean.
    • Gorgeous color.
    • Shades well.
    • Looks so good in a clear pen!
    • The label on top of the cap of the bottle has the name of the ink printed on it, as well as a tiny ink swab so it's easy to spot in your ink drawer/cabinet.
    • Easy to store bottles.
    • Robert Oster is a really nice guy, so I feel happy to support his creations.

    CONS
    • Nope. I love this color.
    OVERALL

    Peppermint was the most popular ink by vote but the Australian Opal Mauve is such a pretty, light, summery purple. Great shading, too!



    I received this item free of charge to help Notemaker select a winning ink, but I'm also now using it for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
