Robert Oster Graphite

I did mention that the Graphite was a different kind of black fountain pen ink – one I had never encountered before. Well here it is – bleeding out red and turquoise with a hard gold yellow when subjected to bleach. The black dries flat and even and it’s dark. like really dark! I had a feeling it was going to be a good one and I’m not disappointed. What’s not to like?

And don’t forget, the full Robert range is available to test at the workshop next Saturday! Details below:

    • Thanks Laura. This pretty much demonstrates all the key points In my mission statement. As soon as I saw the way that bleed happened – the image of the 1920″s gangster moll instantly came to mind with utilising the flow of that gorgeous delicate velvety red, black, turquoise texture as her dress. It’s simple, yet sophisticated and can only be achieved using the unique chromatic qualities of FP ink and its reactions with bleach.
