Ink Jet Ink

Some papers are difficult to work with when printing digital photos, but I think among the worst I have seen is the National Geographic High Gloss Premium Photo. I have found it takes forever (figuratively)  for the ink to dry, but there is an upside to the paper; you can manipulate the ink and the image itself with simple water and a variety of tools. I've done some image "lifting" in the past with inkjet images using hydrogen peroxide, but this is very different paper, as it allows for smearing and moving in so much. Here's a resulting image with "sharpie" embellishment. Not really a finished piece.
