That happened to me too— I think it was that my paper wasn’t super thick and lush (just average neenah 80#)–So I switched inks, I now use Caligo- it’s great and dries in a reasonable amount of time and the clean-up is easy! (I am beginning to sound like a sales rep for them, but I really love their ink)hope that helps….
Thank you everyone. I think what happened was that I had sections of my paper covered with another ink and it was those sections on which the Vanson wasn’t drying because it couldn’t get absorbed into the paper. So, here’s another question: when doing two- or more-color work, what inks do you all use?
Hi Ren. Make sure that you are using uncoated paper- rubber based ink will never dry on a coated stock! I use both rubber and oil based inks and normally don’t have an issue with drying. If you aren’t happy with the rubber based- pick up a can of oil and see how you like it, it definitely dries faster.
