Default What Ink for glossy paper?

Advice please for sponging and stamping on glossy paper. My searches are not turning up anything.

Tim Holtz taught an Archival Resist in one of the Creative Chemistry classes. You stamp with Archival and then blend over it with Distress in any color or colors you want. The Archival will resist the Distress and shine through. It looks awesome with a light color of Archival, like Viridian.

Dye inks work well on glossy paper. They might take a few minutes to dry, though. Pigment inks will not dry without being embossed.

It would depend, they are not all made the same. Some glossy brands actually have a clay based coating on the surface and will absorb some pigment ink. My best advice is to play to see what works for you, it's only paper and ink. Then you can make purchases based on your own experiences.

I saw a video on Youtube using Tim Holtz oxide inks. Smush the ink on the clear acrylic blocks used for stamps. Spritz with water and hold face down on glossy paper (photo paper works too) set a heavy object on it for 5 minuted then take off and let dry. it will look awful but take a paper towel and rub off the residue and WOW!!!!! Tim Holtz distress ink works well too.
