The Pigma Sepia set was created by Sakura in response to consistent customer requests for sepia colored ink in a variety of line types. Sepia is a color preference of artists because it gives a warm tone to sketched images.
Sakura Color Products invented and patented PIGMA® ink over 30 years ago. The unique formulation is based on more complex pigments rather than unstable dyes, making Pigma ink the standard for what is defined as reliable, permanent, archival quality ink.
"Pigma Sepia pens give an old masters feel to sketches, and the ink permanency means the work will last throughout the years," comments Susan Tilton Pecora, a watercolor artist from Thorndike, MA, host of New England PBS watercolor shows and lecturer at Springfield Museums. "I begin all of my work on location and since Pigma Sepia is portable and versatile, I am ready to go. The fine lines of the Micron pens allow for exquisite detail. Heavier lines with graphic pen are possible, while the brush pen provides bold shapes and broad washes of color," adds Pecora.
