I like this one !
I have a sample of it somewhere in my ink stash... time to give it a try. Looks sufficiently different from my other favorite teals (iroshizuku ku-jaku and Edelstein aquamarine).

Interesting chromatography: a lot of haloing/outlining.  I really like Oster inks (one is my favorite out of all inks) and would use them more, but very much dislike their lack of water resistance :(

@Intensity:

I do not test for water resistance, but your observation is right. Nothing is left at the line, so I do not suspect any water resistance. As comparison you can see the chromo of Noodler's Walnut were there still is a line visible.

Thank you, I've learned that from your explanation in a different thread.  It has been a very useful indicator, and I really appreciate your chromatography samples now!

Have you done a review of Waterman's Absolute/Havana Brown?  It does a good deal of outlining with a wet flow pen, even on thin lines.  I like it a lot.

Nice sheen, but I’m not a fan of this “tealish” colours.

Thanks for the great reviews!

Sorry, I did not mean to rush you!  Please take your time and focus on enjoying writing out the reviews of the inks YOU want to review :D

I don't mind a teal. At the moment I will stick with Deep Sea.

 

Not a paradigm for naming consistency, Oster inks.

In my imagination River of Fire wouldn't be this kind of color. maybe he refers to the sheen.
