I tried out the Sepia...
Verified Purchase
I tried out the Sepia and the Umbra inks in this line and was very pleased with both. When used with dip pen or brush on drawing paper, both inks were highly pigmented, waterproof even when highly diluted with water (given plenty of time to dry and set thoroughly), and much more fluid than the Daler-Rowney FW acrylic inks. This means they were easier to use. Also, the colors of these two inks were superior; the Umbra is a true, deep burnt-umber color that does not shift to yellowish shades upon dilution as the FW browns do. The Sepia is what it should be too, a black-brown that is very similar to watercolor versions. (Again, the FW ink version isn't really a sepia color and turns yellowish when diluted.)

I highly recommend at least these two inks from this line - I'll be saving my nickels for others, because I expect them to be equally fine. I've not seen them for sale in the US anywhere else, so I thank JetPens for carrying them.
