I have an I jet color printer. I would like to print black&white lines on plain white then color the model with copic markers, but they dissolve my ink.
Also I do like to print on colored paper. Some metallic colors don't take ink well.
Any suggestions?

As for the running of ink when using markers, I'm guessing you are using water color or washable markers. The same can happen if you use too much glue. The best way to prevent that is to spray the printed page with a clear coat spray. Krylon makes some various archival or artist sprays. You can get them in matte or gloss. I have some basic craft store brand spray. It works well and prevents ink bleeding from markers and glue.

Most metallic papers aren't meant for ink jet printers. There are a few brands and types of metallic paper that do work, but they are pretty few and far between. I believe Michael's Craft Stores carry a few metallic that do work for in jets.

Hope that helps you!

Copic and Prizmacolor markers are Alcohol based permenent markers.

I bought some fixitive (Krylon(r)) and some pastels. I hope to have a report on my progress.

I will apply fixitive before and after.
