Here's one of the lesser-known Baystate inks, Baystate Cranberry. It was a really big disappointment, considering how much I like Baystate Blue. If you need a similar color that's actually brighter (punchier?), I definitely recommend Diamine Cerise. It's an all-around better ink.

It's quite bright for "cranberry" isn't it.

Your panning speaks volumes if you praise BSB...  :D

 

The pinks and reds give me the hardest time for handling in my collection (besides the ever punishing but awesome Baystate Blue)

Hey, once you dilute it about 2.5 to one water to ink, it's much better. It won't quite be hot pink, but it will still be very warm.

If you get bleedthrough on Rhodia you'll get bleedthrough on anything. Is Concord Grape snarky too?

In my limited use the Grape is a dry ink, in my WT Exception (M nib), works like a charm so far.

 

It is a deep purple shade, not over the top bright like its siblings.

Too much for me - migraine inducing in fact!

It looks nice in the scan. I may have to give it a try.
