Still recovering from the holidays here and wrapping up a few pre-scheduled reviews before diving into new and exciting things!
Syrah from Diamine is a berry nice shade. Kinda red-purple. Deep plum. And by now, everyone knows how I feel about “mixed shades” of ink. I’m not a huge fan.
Here’s the ugly. Major fail. (Those of you who watch “How I Met Your Mother” may now salute. Those of you who have no clue about which I speak may also salute. Major Fail – get it?) Anyway, major fail = water test. Even the tiny droplet test (where the “ro” in “from” should be) faded this color into nothingness.
I used a dip pen and Syrah performed well enough. No big complaints, but no big compliments either.
Look at that compare square? I do think if the writer is looking for something dark, but different, this could work (as long as one never nears the water).
It was a little wet as you can see in the Smear Here – but not intolerable.
