REVIEW: SCRYING INK LENORMAND
Updated: Apr 1, 2021
Unboxing, First Impressions & Review
I went to a phase where I want to learn everything about cartomancy and I stumbled upon the Lenormand. I saw Siolo Thompsons' work and was fascinated about her artwork.
WHAT I LIKE: 1. THE ARTWORK. I do know how to sketch a bit that's why when I saw Siolo's artwork being minimalistic with a dash of watercolor, the deck resonated with me right away.
2. CARD STOCK
The cards are HUGE! Size is 5.75 x 3.5 inches. It looks very much like flash cards. I am quite surprised as usually Lenormand decks are tiny because when you need to use the Grand Tableau spread you will be using the entire deck which takes up all the space of your table. This deck may use up your whole floor.
Here's a cute personalised note.
3. AVAILABILITY I ordered the deck here. 4. SHIPPING Took almost a month or two before I was able to get it.
WHAT I HATE:
Cards are HUGE! It consumes the whole floor to do a Grand Tableau.
I love the extra 4 cards - Crown, Broom and an extra set of Male and Female. The only challenge here is to shuffle the huge cards. UPDATE: This deck was the first to go when I did my deck decluttering.
That concludes my review.
