Default Painting over inks

I've tried painting over the GW inks before i use the normal citadel paints, but when i started painting the ink came off i left the ink to dry for about an hour. Can you paint over the inks or do i need a longer waiting time.

I need to know cos im undercoating my skeletons white then inking them brown the drybrushing bleached bone over the top.

If another thread is like this could you please send me the link.

Always allow your inks/washes time to dry thoroughly before adding the next layer of colour...

As foible says need to leave enough time for it to dry, also what should be considered is how much your putting on in the first place, Since the release of "washes" there seems to be a trend of flooding minis with wash.I approach inks and wash in the same way as paint, i paint it on, less on the brush and put the brush exactly were you want the ink/wash to go, the wash is thin enough to still pool up were it needs to be,same with a glaze, thin coats laid on with care almost dragging the brush and almost dry brushing the model with ink.
