Re: Pastel Lightfastness

Hey, Sophie! 'Just saw your post as I haven't been here in years. I just posted some five year lightfastness test results to the Hudson Valley Sketches blog, and have more to come if folks are interested. The ones I posted about are the Charvins -- the 48 stick Charvin Water Soluble set. I'll be posting some other brands too, which were done at the same time. Here's a link to the blog post.

Re: Pastel Lightfastness

Hi Jamie - wow, thank you so much. These tests are great and the results are quite surprising. Thank you for pointing me to your posts. I look forward to seeing the results from the other brands. This is great info!
I am gathering as much info as I can and will do my own tests when the dark winters days have ended (in the UK), but obviously I only have so many brands.
Thank you so much.

I subscribed to you blog via email so I won't miss it! Thanks again.

Re: Pastel Lightfastness

You're so welcome, Sophie. It's nice to know it's appreciated; takes a lot of effort to post all that. Knowing that others find it useful makes it all worthwhile! I'm looking forward to your results. A friend of mine did a six month test of a lot of the Great American pastels, and in that short period of time, a lot shifted dramatically. If she posts those tests, I'll let you know, or will put up a link on my blog, or both.
