I wanted a true dark marine….a blue with green undertones. I am very disappointed in this ink. Every time I write it starts off reddish, then goes to a bluish color and then winds up a dark green. I have learned to write a few sentences on scrap paper, and then I get consistent color. The actual color is dark green without any bluish undertones. It is not a “marine” at all. I have not figured out why is changes color dramatically during the first few minutes of writing. I am wary of buying other Robert Oster Inks as a result.
I did not complain to Chris or Kylie. I really like working with Truphae; it’s a great small business.
