Do you know of a blue that behaves and flows like Diamine Oxblood?
Preferably a medium blue, that is wet and flows easily. A dark or light blue would be alright, but I prefer dark or medium. I'm open to shading.
Thanks!

I have both Diamine Oxblood and Diamine Majestic Blue and find them to behave similarly.

I may be mistaken, but dry inks in Diamine are an exception.

Any Diamine blue should work.

I think you really have to take a look at the Goulet Color Sampler to determine what blue will fill you with glee. Diamine has so many great ones: bluish, greenish, cobalt,navy, all types to choose from. Once you see one which catches your attention, go to the ink review section of this forum and see what properties it has, which it does not have, and more of its characteristics. 

 

Personally, Majestic Blue floats my boat, Saphire does too, and Sargasso Sea has legions of followers. But they all have their strengths and weaknesses. Take a look.

Also look at Cybaea's Diamine chart.
