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
