Nita at InkTracks has found a way to deal with an issue that has perplexed many:

"I’ve discovered that if I use 180-weight sandpaper and lightly stroke

more often now. I’d tried changing the surface by spraying or adding
things to the paper–then suddenly realized I needed to sand *off* the
resistance. Eureka!"

  1. This is an interesting way to work with that paper. I will try it. I have been using the old way of a drop of dish soap in the water. That always works for me.
