Once super dilute, it reminded me of Red Chalk.

Here is my more simple review of the Red Cashmere. I only got to try it with one pen. I'm waiting for another pen to empty out and then I'll try it in something else...

I wonder if it is slow because I sent it to you super saturated.  When you get a chance to try it when you mix, I think it may be different.

Yes I don't know what concentration I have with this one. I know it's not 16%, but I know it's not 8% either. Probably closer to the 16%. I'll try adding some water carefully avoiding over dilution and see what we get.

Yours is probably 13.3%.  That color looks right.

 

Also, I found you can dilute it WAY down....

Yes! I had noticed that post. I do have what appears to be 2 ml, so I'll have to look back at the dilution ratios and get it to 8% just to start.

 

Caution: More inky fun ahead!  :wub:

I have posted an Inky Gradient of Red Cashmere for those wondering about dilution.

I would call the 1.45% concentration a raspberry pink/red.  I do not see the same amount of orange that is getting Amber a Red Chalk appearance.  Perhaps this is because hers is even less concentrated?

Red Cashmere at 8%

 

I love all of the Cashmere colors.  I want the whole line.

Mine was the DREGS that were still in the pen that I was getting ready to flush.

This is my review of Susemai Red Cashmere. I received 2 dilutions - one that was labeled 13.3%, and one labeled 16%. I have reviewed both and will post them below. I suspect that my pipettes were mislabeled and the dilutions were mixed up, since it seemed like the one labeled 13.3% was much more concentrated than the one labeled 16%.  Both reviews were done with an eyedropper converted Platinum Preppy.

Review for the "16%" dilution, which seems lighter to me. Could be this particular pen used wrote finer or drier, but both were fine point Platinum Preppies, purchased new.

I think you are correct that looks like 13.3. At 16% you see lots of sheen.

Here's a Red Cashmere ink splatter, from cleaning my pen.  You can definitely see some sheen in here.

Turn it to the left and it looks like an alien about to eat unsuspecting humans.

@Dead-brackets - keep on doing them :) It's such a fun :)

OK. Now let's get serious. Red Cashmere has stunning, mesmerizing color when it's wet. However on cheap copy paper it dries pretty fast and turns brownish.
