    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Elaine asks: "How do I keep the lines from the digital image from bleeding into my Inktense pencil coloring when I apply water?"
    A: I'd let the ink cure overnight and then spray the paper with a couple of light coats of workable fixative - I use this one. Make sure to hold the can at least a foot away from your paper - too close to the paper or too heavy coverage and the spray will cause the ink to run too.
