    Sailor Kobe No:3 Sepia

    Dear Fellow FPN's, I recently had chance to try Sailor Kobe inks with the grace of a friend. No:3 Sepia was one of them. It is a cold under-toned brown. In general terms, it is highly saturated, lubricated and with nearly no shadowing, no sheen and behaves well with all kind of pens. I hope you like it.

    Private Reserve Sepia

    I mentioned in my last ink review that I am looking for a nice ink that comes in standard international carts and this is another contender in that quest. I love the color, but I’m not super excited about some of the other behavior here. This is one of those colors that is so strange and ugly that it’s beautiful, likeDiamine Salamander. It shades like crazy, which is really fun. I also didn’t notice any troubles with bleeding or feathering even on cheaper papers, so that’s always a nice change. I also think that this color better embodies the label “sepia” than some others I’ve seen,

  4. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows any similar color to Noodler's El Lawrence. I am a big fan of murky/earthy ink colors (fervent user of Zhivago, R&K Sepia and Herbin Lie de The) and would really like to try out El Lawrence, but I can't find it in any EU store (although it's part of the UK series?!). From what I saw in writing samples, the color seems pretty similar to R&K Sepia, albeit a bit greener. What do you think? Thanks! Cheers, Dragos

    What Is A Good Brown Ink?

    Hello, So I was interested in buying a nice brown ink or sepia ink. Any suggestions on which brands have great brown inks or any suggestions on brown inks with great shading?

    Organics Studio - Join Or Die

    Time to give a bit of love to a small ink manufacturer, Organics Studio. From what I can tell, it’s a bit of a one man band, and I do so love supporting smaller businesses when I can. I tried another OS ink as well, but that was when my computer was broken and I didn’t get a scan before doing a water test and somehow I lost the picture I took of the original page, so I will have to just redo that one later. I think I still have enough left in my sample to fill a pen… Anyway, Join or Die is part of the “Sepia” line of inks, and I suppose I would be willing to call it a greenish sort of

    Detective Work

    Hello. I need a little help please, pinning-down a particular swap from a Diamine brown(ish). I found it in a general Diamine search. I want a lighter, almost dark amber vs. my beloved darker, MB Toffee Brown...Nothing with a reddish tone. Too many of these already. This color reminds me of old 19th century documents which is what I want.This swab was def. Diam., but had no tag. I've looked at other Diam. images I have and need to identify this one. Their swab is distinctive... I'm thinking this is the one for me. My guesses: Diamine-Ochre, sepia, golden brown, raw sienna ? Any thoughts pleas

    Private Reserve Black Cherry

    You think you're buying black cherry ink. But what you're really buying is...black cherry ink. You're probably expecting with a name like black cherry that this will look like that dark red color from the kool-aid packets or the soda can. But the thing is, this is the color of actual black cherries, if you've ever eaten them off the tree. So this is probably a bit more brown than you're thinking it'll be. This ink will vary, depending on the paper and on your pen. In a wet pen, or on more absorbent paper, the red color shows up a little stronger. Otherwise, you're looking at a sort o
  10. Well, there comes a time in everyone's life when they are ready for some color. I have thus far played with black, black and ooh, you guessed it, black. My current pens are all fine nibs, non-flex. They tend to be dry. I have found some reasonably good paper, and mostly use my pens to sketch, though I'm starting to work on Chancery italic hand too. I think tones in the brownish, sepia, red, (maybe orangish, if not too orange) might be a nice alternative. I saw this one as a possibility: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/222032-diamine-ochre/ One criteria that
  11. Hi all, Just got some Private Reserve Sepia through the post and I'm really impressed with the shading. It looks like tortoise shell, its delicious. I'm wondering if its the nib more than the ink thought. If you use it, does it look like this for you? http://www.flickr.com/photos/39505524@N02/9452708010/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/39505524@N02/9449913335/ Pen: TWSBI Vac 700 Nib: Noodlers Flex. Ink: As above!
