  • Great talk WAY too short…I don’t know if this was mentioned off camera?
    I am an artist so archival purposes are very important to me.

    The problem I see with most dyes they are only good for the short-term …effects of UV on dyes, acid in the dyes and there effect on paper, etc.

    A pigment based approach or something that wont fad to quickly with a better lightfastness would be better for the longterm.
