How to protect watercolor paintings from fading?
These are some important measures you can take to protect your watercolor drawings from fading over time:
- Keep your easy watercolor painting out of direct sunlight by applying a sheet of filtered glass or acrylic on top of it.
- Spraying on multiple coats of varnish (gloss) on simple watercolor painting also works.
- Ensure the mat board of the watercolor painting scenery is acid-free to keep the paints from discoloring over time.
