Does the dye only have one version of black? I'm wondering if there's a black dye that won't give the shiny look when finished. The outdoor "AFTER" pictures look like metallic pewter under the sun, but the shine seems to be gone after conditioning. Is that true?

Yes, after the dye it get's really shiny and a little bit sticky but after moisturizing it just looks a lot better! It just looks like your old broken-in b-bag but darker :tup:

O:huh:H Look at you! It looks wonderful! WOW!!! I need a Black City NOW.

Your bag still looked gorgeous before the transformation, but AFTER is absolutely stunning. Amazing how it turned out!

It is true huh? About the minor sticky feeling.... how one coat of AG really does it up nicely.

Man, I really like it. Good job, girl! (Was wondering where you disappeared to. =P)

It looks beautiful!

WHat type of dye did you use and does to wear off, I mean does it rub against clothing and transfer?
I'm sure shoe can reaffirm that this Tarrago Dye doesn't rub off. It stays like a dream! No transfer, no nothing.

Just a nice rich and deep black. :yes:

^^ No worries, we should actually all thank dstar! She is the one who started this whole movement.

Even though My BG Day's conversion isn't finished... I'm sure glad my Black first turned about as great as it did. Yours looks better than mine, I'm totally impressed!

Woot!
