Organics Studio Santiago's Sea Blue: Ink Review
Hi folks, Whitney here! Today I'm talking about my review of Organics Studio Santiago's Sea Blue , (Formerly named Ernest Hemingway, as of late 2019 this ink was renamed to Santiago's Sea Blue). Santiago's Sea Blue has a beautiful greenish-teal base color with that metallic burgundy sheen seen in similar Organics Studio inks. I've done two other reviews of Organics Studios inks recently, and this experience wasn't terribly different from those. I will say, however, that this is my favorite of the three! Read on to find out why:
- LAMY AL-star with medium steel nib (also EF and B nib)
- Rhodia No. 16 dotpad, 80g white paper
- Tomoé River white paper
- Moleskine notebook
Smear Test (Dry Time):
- 30+ seconds – Like other OS inks, Santiago's Sea Blue takes over 30 seconds to dry, and days later will still put a dusting of ink on fingertips when touched.
Drip Test (Water Resistance):
I enjoyed the more green-leaning teal of this ink's base color, as well as the more balanced used of the sheening quality versus some of the other Organics Studio inks that we carry.
