Thick (400 to 1200 GSM) French paper & Spaniash paper with Sennelier Indigo 308
INK – Sennelier Indigo 308 (Three star – Very good lightfastness rating)
Watercolors Made in France using traditional methods. L’Aquarelle Sennelier has been produced in the same way for more than a century using the best pigments and top quality Kordofan Gum Arabic as a bonding agent. This mix of natural ingredients produces colours which have a smooth, bright texture and offer lively, colourful shades.
The Gum Arabic and honey combination offers incomparable quality of application, producing superb washes. Then, this base is mixed with pigments and carefully ground. Sennelier makes sure to wet the pigments in purified water (with no mineral salts) for 24 hours before mixing them in with the bonding agent. This improves the way in which the colours and bonding merge together, in turn bringing out the full beauty of the colours. Sennelier watercolors are ground in the traditional way using grindstones rotating slowly so as not to heat up the paste. This operation is carried out in several stages until the paste are as fine as possible thus getting rid of any particles which might impair the perfection of the wash.

I have made cedar frames and then burnt them – sealing the timber with polyurethane – my intention is to house the work with a charcoal frame that connects me to a feeling of Australian bushfires – This frame is not a hard wood frame with a perfect even look and so in time small chips may occur. opcje binarne bossa Cleaning the work

Richard Seiling:

Longevity can never be separated from display conditions. The greater the intensity and duration of exposure to light, the greater the risk of fading. Even “archival” processes are not very tolerant of direct sunlight and can fade under it in weeks to a few years. Even indirect sunlight can accelerate fading. Most prints are very sensitive to environmental contamination (ozone, acids, cleaners, etc.), and to get the most longevity you need to use conservation mounting and framing practices, i.e. cotton rag board, UV blocking glazing, etc.

Jerry Weiner:

Color photographs fade over time. Light increases fading. Fading increases with the brightness of the light and the length of time in the light. When displayed, photos should be kept away from direct sunlight or bright lamps that are left on constantly. Heat also increases fading, even at moderate temperatures, such as 70-75F, found in homes. At these temperatures, fading always occurs, even in the dark!
