Stipula Calamo Sepia

Recommended Posts

Stipula makes a line of inks, one online shop had seven of their inks, another five. They don't seem to get much attention here on the forum. But I'm always interested in an ink named "sepia". They have big 70 ml bottles. This is my first bottle of theirs.

 

There are old reviews here on FPN showing an ink with this name to be a muted gray-green. That is not what the ink currently is. The online shops correctly show the ink as a red-brown. It is nearly identical to Franklin-Christoph Brown in color, but very fast drying. The pictures here didn't quite capture the reddish hue here, and often just turned it dark. Maybe if I had a more modern iPhone I'd get better color capture. Perhaps someday.

 

This ink washes red. It is not a replacement for PPM.

 

There's nothing bad about this ink, but it is very similar to all the other red-brown inks out there.

Not terribly water resistant.

Thank you again for another wonderful review of one of my favorite inks. Not one of my favorite "sepias" but certainly one of the nicest browns I use. I agree Stipula has made an excellent ink & if you have the opportunity or desire I can also say the Verde Muschiato by Stipula is equally attractive in performance if you like a "murky, mysterious green." I have refilled the same pen for the third time with it & can't imagine I will change it with the large bottle & pleasing performance of the ink.

Totally agree with this!

 

Thanks for the review of the Sepia, White Lotus, as I now am always looking for Stipula reviews.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
