Watercolors, acrylics, and oils don't fade in 20 or 30 years. There are many in museums which are hundreds of years old and still look good (not acrylics). However all artists pigments are rated for permanence so that painters can use pigments which are relatively durable. On the other hand no artist I know would expose their work to UV light or other damaging conditions. -----Original Message----- From: Robert Jackson <email@example.com> To: Epson List <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thursday, January 06, 2000 6:14 PM Subject: OT:fade rates for "real" watercolor or arcylic paintings >Any guesses as to how long your average watercolor painting, (artist's >original) endures before noticeable fading?
