lightfastness- We use professional pigments that are tested for Fastness to light by our suppliers and are rated Excellent as Measured in accordance to ISO/R 105/I; DIN 54003. Panels at full shade and at 75:25 white reduction (TiO2) were exposed for 2,000 hours in an Atlas Fade-Ometer.” These pigments are then hand blended with our gatherer wild pigments the final recipes tested third party to be certified AP by the Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI) non toxic suitable for use by children. We are in the process of conducting our own third party lightfastness tests with the help of a dedicated artist in Spain, we will share more detailed lightfastness ratings as they become available. Until then here are a few rules of thumb I have used as an artist and learned from my parents. Paintings you want forever shouldn't be in direct sunlight, yellows can be more vulnerable to light damage, prussian blue is an odd duck that can fade in the sun, but if its put in the dark will recover its color, plant based colors have been more delicate, if we use a plant pigment (like indigo) it will be marked so you can decide (so far we only have one indigo ink and have done a limited edition Mayan Green, but we are working on more lightfast plant based options for 2024) See our safe painting page for more info
