The clue for the upcoming inks were that they would come from overseas. Granted, that could reference Diamine, Bookbinders, Faber Castell, J. Herbin and many more brands but I had a gut feeling they would be Robert Oster inks. I was correct.
Robert Oster inks have become very popular recently and the most infamous would be Fire and Ice. I would be lying if I said I wasn't interested in trying them out and I really like the color palette included in this Ink Flight.
Our Robert Oster samples for March are:
- Barossa Grape
- Fire & Ice
- Cafe Crema
- Australian Sky
- Yellow Sunet
- Direct Sun
Along with the inks came a Robert Oster blotting card.
It is a convenient and portable way to handle long drying ink when on the go and you need to hurry and close that notebook on a freshly penned note(s). Last month we had the micro fiber cloth and here is a blotter card. I love this.
Next was a surprise. Last month there was an InkJournal book for our ink cataloging needs but this month was a bit different.
Three Platinum Preppy pens with all of the supplies needed to convert them into eyedropper pens. Included are the pens with F nibs, o-rings, silicone grease and an eyedropper. Now, you may be sitting there thinking "well that is all fine and dandy but how in the heck would I do that!"
Instructions are also included! Huzzah! This eyedropper kit was a welcome surprise and allows other pen enthusiasts to possibly try something new.
InkJournal Ink Flight #2 is a success in my opinion. I paid $25.00 for this months offering and I believe I will be continuing to do so going forward. I really like seeing what is inside the box!
