    I've had a great deal of luck with acrylics thinned with rubbing alcohol and applied in multiple thin coats. The reduced surface tension from the rubbing alcohol lets the porous surface soak up the material and speeds drying, and after a few coats, when the color is even and rich, additional detail work doesn't bleed because the pores are already filled in. Its what I used on the P.E.S.T. sample print:
