Ink Shot Review: @RobertOsterInk Ryde Green @MilligramStore

Did you know Notemaker has changed their name to Milligram Store? Same great stuff, new name! Milligram sent over six Robert Oster inks for me to review and share with you here, so let's start with one of my favorites - Ryde Green! I'm a sucker for a shading, vibrant green any day.

    CONS

    • Um... basically nothing.

    OVERALL

    Ryde Green is a gorgeous, vibrant green. I think it's absolutely beautiful and shows great shading. This is my favorite kind of green - rich and real, nicely saturated, well-behaved. Just beautiful. I love it.

    CONS

    • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
    • Shows a little bleed through, but it's not so bad for the most part.

    OVERALL

    This ink is one of my favorites of the set, because it's unique and has great shading! I like olive/green/yellow-ish inks for calligraphy (attempts at calligraphy) and for use in flex nibs. I think the ink really stands out.
