Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink: Organics Studio Ink Company is a fairly new ink company whose owner Tyler is passionate about his unique handcrafted inks. Organics Studio inks come in into 4 categories: The Masters of Science Series, The Vintage Ink Series, The Element Series and The Masters of Writing Series inks. Each series has specific ink properties and a number of different ink colors.
Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink is part of the Organics Studio Masters of Writing Series. Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe is a dark brown-red colored ink that shows really well on paper and has medium to high saturation. The Masters of Writing inks fill the gaps between the normal every day colors and hues to those unique color combinations that are harder to come by. Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink lives up to this challenge as it’s neither a true brown ink nor a true red ink. This unique brown-red color is a truly distinctive made in America handcrafted ink.

We found the following traits while testing Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink that you may find helpful:
We used Rhodia bloc paper with a J. Herbin dip glass pen for this review. The French made glass dip pen has a tip that is similar to a fine pointed fountain pen nib.
Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink comes in a clear plastic simple 55 ml. bottle. The simple bottle has a large lid about the same diameter as the bottle itself. This makes filling a fountain pen much easier. Each bottle comes in a simple cardboard box with a unique and interesting colored label describing the ink inside.
Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink retails for $16.00, but we have it available for only $12.80. This price makes the ink a reasonably priced ink. We would categorize it between an economy and mid range priced ink. Definitely a fair price due to its handmade nature.
The dry time was approximately 6 seconds while testing Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink with the fine tipped glass dip pen. This is pretty good since this ink is a medium to high-saturated ink.
We experienced zero bleeding while using this ink, both during normal use and the cotton swab tests.
Our test lines were clear and distinct during normal use with Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink. Even during the water test there was only slight feathering noticed. This particular ink held up better than most non-waterproof inks.
We conducted a water test where we run a soaking wet cotton swab over a dried ink sample of the Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink. This ink held up very well. Although there was some color smearing and slight line distortion, it was not nearly as pronounced as other non-waterproof inks.
One of the characteristics we have noticed with most Organics Studio inks is their shading characteristics. Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink is no different. With the proper pen, nib, paper and hand writing it will produce some wonderful shading characteristics.
Conclusion about the Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink
Organics Studio Edgar Allen Poe Raven Red Ink is a unique color that shows up very well due to its good saturation.
