I just tried recolouring a few wood veneers with some pigment ink I had on hand (the only type of ink I had in the colour I wanted). 15 minutes later and the ink is still wet. It rubs right off on my hands.
Did I use the wrong kind of ink? Is there a trick to this that I don't know?

I use Mister Huey color mist. I let it air dry or use my heat gun if I'm in a hurry.

Acrylic paints work nicely also.

Heat it with a heat gun until its dry. It will be fine after that. I've had to do that in the past week on other slick surfaces.

I have found that the best ink to use are the prima chalk inks, they are amazing on the veneer, i use veneer on everything and could not live without the Prima for this reason
