I just bought some fluid chalk edgers by prima. I really like them, but I'm having trouble with them drying. Even after leaving them dry all over night, if I put my finger on the inked paper the color drags. Does anyone have the same problem?

Yes, I have also. I usually leave it on a bit and then run a tissue over the edge.

I like other brands better, they don't have that problem. The one I got from Prima made a mess.

Do you mean these? I'm glad to know it because in the information in the Superstore here it says they dry fast! That would not be fast.

I'm fine with extended dry time as long as I know about it in advance.

I find this the case with almost all true liquid chalk edgers. I run a tissue over the edge, also, and then, if necessary, use my heated embossing tool to blow it dry.

I'm so glad you posted this. I love Prima and I've been tempted to get those!

I love the cats eye fluid chalk. Seems to dry pretty instantly. I would hate ones that don't dry instantly.

I like these better than the cat eye inks. Haven't noticed, the slow drying time, but will remember that for next time. I use distress inks alot, and they tend to dry slow too.

Cat eyes are my favorite, too!

I have the prima ones, and I used to have other brand too (cat eyes?). I like Primas because they don't dry in the package - the other chalk ink dried up, the pad fell off, and the whole thing had to be tossed out within a year of purchase.

As for drying, I think it depends on the material you use. Chipboard soaks ink right in, watercolor paper will always saturate right in, and so does most of the cardstock. Other cardstock (glossy or waxed or resistant) will let the ink stay on the surface and will not saturate..

Quick Quotes has a chalk ink pads and I like them. They dry pretty fast and last forever.

I hadn't tried the tissue trick. So easy. Thanks.

I have a lot of the colours of the Prima ones shown above....I use them all the time and have not had any issues with drying!
I love using them to edge my pages, embellishments, tags etc. and I also have used them on stencils...no problem on regular cardstock or pp....
