Default polished stone not drying

Can anybody help me. I did a polished stone technique this morning and tonight when i came home the gold still wasn't dry... hmmmmmmm how will my customers ever finish their cards tomorrow if they don't dry in a reasonable amount of time. Seems like the other colors were ok, just not the gold.

Thanks.

you need to use a fixative on the metallic - i used krylon but i believe hair spray would also fix it - otherwise it will continue to smudge on the glossy card

I also take a cotton ball and rub the excess gold, copper or silver off. It works pretty well for me!!! Good luck!

Because I'm so impatient, I usually run the heat gun over it to help dry it. HTH
