    It is. You have to allow for extra drying time. That's usually why I'll mix it into the ink rather than printing over the ink. That way (for me at least) it's not so bad. You can water it down too-- that helps.

    about how long is the extra drying time?

    and if you water it down, how much does that affect the gloss?

    and finally how watered down can you go - just a little watered down? (i'm assuming not 50% or more.)
