Thanks for the steam suggestion Pete, I'll experiment with that method too.
Think today I'll pick up a can of spray Minwax lacquer and try that as well. Maybe I can do this in one experiment, cover a frame and spray a light coat of the lacquer on one side to fix the ink. Mist with water and see what happens. The other side I could leave dry and try the steam method.
Maybe a combo, lacquer and steam. That might reduce the risk of the ink bleeding.

I hear you on the cheap ink cartridges. I have tried refilling my own with limited success. Then I started using commercially refilled ones and had worse luck with those than with filling my own. Now I just pay the outrageous HP prices but I get cartridges that work and have quality ink. it's still not waterproof though....
