Hey, I have windows 10 and just bought a Pixma i6800. I need to print black line on watercolor paper to watercolor paint over. Problem is, the ink is smearing and it doesn't matter if I print the black lines normal or on greyscale.
Is the PGBK ink waterproof and if so, is there a way to specify it?
If not, is there a black ink for this printer that is waterproof?
Really need help on this because I bought this for my business to finally be printing myself and now I'm back at square one.. 😞

The inks for your PIXMA iP6820 are not waterproof. What most users do is coat the paper after printing is complete with a spray. An example of such a spray coat is called frog juice.
