though I use an Epson 9900, your model might not employ an inset that will dry on a surface such as what you use.
It is typical for certain inks to not dry on an acetate or plastic base. Even my Ultrachrome inks will not dry. You might try
using a hair dryer.

Those and others have a special coating to receive the ink.  Also, please check that you are using PK and not MK ink by any chance, the latter will take very long to dry for sure if not for days - will also run or smudge.
