Default Drying silver reinkers

I made a panel of polished stone last night and that silver ink still isn't dry 12 hours later. Is there any trick to this? I'd like to make my card. Thanks.

PS With polished stone you use reinkers, a metallic reinker and alcohol on a panel of glossy paper.

I spray mine with an Acrylic sealer.

I didn't think of that. I hit it with a heat gun and waited overnight. Can I use hairspray to seal it?

Was that your lovely IC card on Saturday? I know some silver inks will never dry on glossy card, though heat setting might help. Clear EP and heat embossing would fix it for sure. If it's a look you like, the Rangers Mixatives are great for adding pearl or metallic effects to Polished Stone, and are designed to dry on glossy card.
