my ink keeps bleeding through the pages of my latest moleskine. it drives me nuts. particularly with ink washes, it does this. for some reason, though, this is different with water colors. why does ink absorb so quickly yet water colors tend to be a little repellant?

the mysteries of life.

  1. Ink is a solution, watercolors are a suspension. (I think I have that right... But don't quote me.)

    I've found that if I lay down watercolors first and let the page dry, then lay ink on top I have little-to-no trouble w/ bleeding-- but that's assuming you want to combine the two.

    Loved the HK humidifier. S'a great strip.
