When I tried the Sailor Rikuyucha (Thank you Mia for providing the sample) I realized two things: it is almost identical to the Stipula Muschiato and it is almost impossible to tell whether it is brown or green or both.
It looks brown(ish) together with the greens and green(ish) together with the browns.
I wasn’t too fond of it in the beginning, but it has grown on me and right now it is one of the inks I’m considering bringing when I’m relocating to the US next month. I can bring very few things, so that ought to say something about how much I currently like it.
I want to thank the providers and enablers for contributing to this ink map – thank you Paul, Erin, Mia and Pär (at penshoppen) without your kindness and generosity I wouldn’t have half this little chart of greens and browns – toads and frogs and their cross breeds.
