| Amazing burgundy colour....
, December 5, 2012
Amazing burgundy colour. It's been lauded as an ink that really looks like
blood, and I have to agree. Think Diamine Syrah and Red Dragon mixed with a
little bit of Waterman Havana brown. Note that when it's smeared, there's a bit
more purple in the red than what you'd expect from actual blood, but the effect
when concentrated is stunning.
It feathers a little bit on really, really cheap recycled papers, but otherwise
it's very well behaved. It's dark enough on any paper that it doesn't look like
correction or notation ink.
