Robert Oster Cherry Blossom Ink Review

Robert Oster Cherry Blossom Ink Review

During our review of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink we found the following characteristics that you may find helpful when considering your next ink purchase:

Testing Factors

We used a French made J. Herbin glass dip pen on Rhodia dot pad paper for our review. Other papers and pen nibs may produce differing results.

Bottle Size

All of Robert Oster inks come in a standard yet functional and environmentally safe 50 ml. plastic bottle. Each bottle of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink has a small white label on ribbed lid with a small ink sample swatch and color name. There is no additional outer packaging that comes with Robert Oster inks, but we have found the lids to be tight and do not leak during shipment.

Cost

Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink is imported directly from Australia by Pen Chalet, as there is no US distributor, which makes its $17.00 retail price quite reasonable.

Dry Time

We found an extremely quick dry time during our review of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink of approximately 2-3 seconds. Not all Robert Oster inks have this quick of a dry time, as 7-8 seconds is more of a standard dry time, which is still reasonably quick.

Bleed Through

There was no bleeding using Rhodia paper during our review of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink.

Feathering

During normal use we found no feathering throughout our review of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink. Even during our water test the lines remained pretty clear without a lot of added feathering.

Water Test

We conducted a water test during our review of Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink. The results were some slight line fading, but not a lot of line distortion or feathering. Also, we only saw some light color smearing. Overall Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink held up quite well for a non-waterproof ink color.

Shading and Sheening

All of Robert Oster inks are known for their shading characteristics. Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink will not disappoint. There is quite a bit of color variation from a light dusty pink to a dark pink – purple color and a few shades in between. Like most inks shading will largely depend upon the user, nib and paper used.

Conclusion about Robert Oster Cherry Blossom Ink

Robert Oster Cherry Blossom ink is a dark dusty pink color that is appealing and soothing to the eye. It is very fast drying, has nice shading traits and is reasonably priced. This color is not your typical pink color and can be used in a variety of applications as it shows well on paper and is not too vibrant or light. As with all most all of Robert Oster inks, he did not disappoint with Cherry Blossom. Happy Writing from Australia!

You must surely have considered my requests for more pink ink reviews when selecting this bottle, and I’m grateful for that. In regards to the ink itself, I find it rather interesting how dark it is for a pink ink (though, it is by Robert Oster). The shading is on point as usual for this brand, and this makes me wonder if you might consider some drawing or doodles with some future reviews. Perhaps with a strong purple?

I would think that “cherry blossom” pink would be lighter, similar to the petals on the actual tree, so it is a pleasant surprise to see that this ink isn’t too light. Though, being a Robert Oster ink, a natural tendency towards shading does make sense. I am rather fond of mixing my inks, and I think this would be a prime candidate to mix with something like a hint of burgundy to bring out the saturation and vibrancy inside it. With that in mind, perhaps a vibrant purple would be a good choice for an upcoming review?

Current favourite has to be Robert Oster peach. It’s an orangish shading bright yellow. So cheerful and lovely to use!
