I had a print made with the Cone Ink Thrift Dye sitting on an easel in the backyard over 3 days. There was a painter’s pallet covering half of it as I was trying to match a color in the print to some antique thing for a color match.
When I took the pallet off the print, the blue exposed to the sun had faded a lot, almost a cyan. The covered part looked the same dark blue.
Would making the print again and maybe covering it with the Gloss Optimizer out of the K7 printer help with the fading? Three days seems a bit short as the sun only shines about 3 hours a day in the area the setup was located. Would some other coating help in this fading matter with the dye ink?
