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.

I will try to do the review of Waterman Havannah Brown on short notice

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.
