Pa Stamper, I just sent you a PM just in case you don't see my answer here.
I think the difference is sanding the polyshrink. I've had my colors run before only when I don't sand the polyshrink before starting. When I do sand it and use watercolor pencils, the coloring becomes permanent. I have no idea why.
My only guess is that the color sits in the grooves of the sanding and when it shrinks it gets locked into the polyshrink. There's my unscientifically based answer. ;)
