  • 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.

Peppermint ticks all the right boxes for me. I think this is a gorgeous green, especially in broad, wet nibs. It's so deep and saturated, and the sheen is so delectable. It's such a seductive ink! It shades really well because it's not so dark that it's just a dark green, so you get a nice green range. Also awesome for art purposes.



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.

CONS

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Medium cleaning effort - saturated purples can take some work.

OVERALL

Ok... Pansy is gorgeous. I love this purple. It's deep but still somehow vibrant and full of life. Highly recommended. Another great color in this set!
