I got this question from a student of mine. He wants to paint with oils on top of a inkjet print. My concern is that those inks might bleed into the oilpaint. Does anyone have experience with this?

If they are solvent-based inks they very well might. This would be an easy thing to test on a small scale....take some turp or mineral spirits (or whatever diluent your student is using) and apply to a very small area of the inkjet print (as in a drop along an edge or in a corner). You will be able to tell immediately if there are solubility issues....but then again your student may like the overall effect that this produces. As an aside we have had a few queries relating to inkjets on MITRA (this one may be of particular interest). One way to pull them all up is to simply insert "inkjet" into the search field.
