Color is Alive - Bee pollen & Oak Ink

The unique yellow hue is obtained from bee pollen, donated by an Italian beekeeper living in the Euganean Hills Regional Park - homeland of Greta Desirèe Facchinato too. The deep black hue is obtained following one of the most ancient techniques to make black, by using oak galls foraged in The Netherlands and UK by the artist.

Caring instructions:
Natural inks are different from modern synthetic inks and dyes. Because these colors are alive, they require some care to maintain their beauty & color fastness.

• Protect your artwork by using a frame with a protective glass layer

• When choosing where to display the artwork, find a location away from direct sunlight, as this may fade colors
