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.

CONS

  • When your bottle gets low on ink, it's hard to fill from. 
  • Exhibits a little bleed through with wet use. 
  • Saturated color requires some effort to clean thoroughly.

OVERALL

This is an interesting color - it's a little on the blue side of purples, and I like purple purples more, but the saturation and vibrancy of this is still quite nice.
