Ink Shot Review: @RobertOsterInk Blue Water Ice @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 - Blue Water Ice! I love sheen any day.

  • A gorgeous, vibrant blue with great shading.
  • 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.

  • Robert Oster is a really nice guy, so I feel happy to support his creations.

    CONS

    • Um... basically nothing. The downside to another blue is it takes a really wet, broad nib to really see the difference between this one and another blue. Great for artists and letterers but if you're looking to justify another blue ink and you only use an extra-fine nib, you probably won't see it.

    OVERALL

    Robert Oster has created a lot of stunning blues and while you may think, oh another blue? You cannot overlook the saturation, subtle colors, and sheen that packs into these inks. Blue Water Ice is another winner for me.

      CONS

      • A lone pie shaped bottle looks sad and funny.
      • Purple can stain so watch your clear pens!

      OVERALL

      I'm always looking for a fabulous purple. It's hard to find a truly gorgeous purple, but this one is definitely gorgeous. It's a true purple - but as with all purples, be careful what you put it in. I did not experience any staining but I know purples can stain so I'm always careful.
