So recently I decided to try gessoing my paper since it seems to be a technique that's really liked. I used Prima's Clear Gesso on Graphic 45 paper (I doubt the paper brand matters... but still) and let it dry overnight. Then I sprayed home made distress inks (made in Ranger's mini misters with distilled water and Tim Holtz's Inks). I used the Ranger heat tool to speed up the drying process and the inks never fully dried, especially where the ink pooled. Now in some spots it did but in some it just didn't. Is this typical? I mean I know gesso is used to keep the media workable but I've never had media just not cure. Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch in advance.
