I do like Derren Brown's O&W but I prefer Dingle's which has an Oil & Queens kicker which I end up using to segue into Aronson's Under Her Spell.

I just started doing Aldo Colombini's Oil and Water from his The Essential Aldo Colombini DVDs. It's a fun routine!

Personally, I have just never gotten into this effect. I personally just never found it interesting. And I Gould not ever find a way to make myself care why the cards/colors seperated.

I tried a few routines but only found one I actually liked. Sadly it has been so long now I forgot who's it was. So I even feel bad putting a comment here. What I do remember liking about it was the fact it was quite easy to do. Letting me concentrat on the performance. And the fact that this version took you away from the "watch the colors seperate" (again... Yawn)

As some above mentioned, the repitition. Is what I always disliked about this effect.

I have been performing Guy Hollingworth's Oil and Water for many years now and it always gets a strong reaction. It's clean and really not that difficult to perform. A plus with this routine is if you can get the special move down then you can move onto Waving the Aces which will knock the socks off of people.

I remember seeing someone perform a stage version of Oil and Water at the Blackpool Magical Championships probably about 15 years ago.

I can't remember his name but his act was themed around a farmer and his cards had sheep and cows on them. He performed it by mixing "Baaa"s and "Mooo"s.

The routine was really funny and the effect was a knock out.
