Organics Studio is a boutique fountain pen ink company started by a University of Maryland biochemistry student. The company was present on the market few years ago and I guess some of their inks were quite popular. I remember I really enjoyed Walt Whitman, Blue Merle or Boron. In 2014 company’s creator decided to take a break in creating inks and I have impression he did it in a way that discouraged many ink afficionados. Some of OS inks developped some sediment, some lost their colors or deteriorated. In June 2016 OS came back to market but as I see their inks aren’t widely available. I bel;ieve regainiong trust in our small world won’t be that easy. On the other hand I would gladly try their new inks and if such a possibility arises I’ll do it.
The bottle of Walt WHitman Leaves of Green was fifted to me by MMG112 – thank you Mary, it’s very generous 🙂
I liked this ink in the past when I had only sample and I like it now. I heard some people had issues with it turning grey but so far I haven’t experienced it. The color is interesting and quite unique. It’s definitely not perfect ink but I’m glad I have it as it’s the kin of color I like to use on regular basis.
Flow: the Ink feels dryish. The flow is average.
Saturation: level of saturation is satisfying for my needs.
Drying time: rather reasonable. 15-20 seconds on Rhodia, 10 – 15 seconds on absorbent paper.
Clogging issues: None experienced. The ink may dry in the nib but only after few minutes. You can leave the pen uncapped for 2-3 minutes and everything should be fine.
Feathering: none experienced.
Bleedthrough: almost none, even on crappy paper – Moleskine
Water resistance: this ink isn’t water resistant.
