    Chris,

    Have you given the idea of using colored pencils. They never go dry do not "soak" too far into the paper and can be mixed to produce any color that you might need. The watercolor part can be moistened with a little water to obtain a more saturated color on the edge. A set of these will not break the bank account and are a fairly standard part of a card modlers tool box. You might also want to look at "Woodless Graphite" pencils. These are big pencil leads without the wood and come in sets of four grades of hardness. Matching the surrounding luminance levels (black to white scale) works nearly as well as a perfect color match.
