Carbon pigments have been used for writing and imaging on cave walls for thousands of years and have shown to have an excellent history of stability. Carbon is by far the most light-fast pigment. It will not fade over time in sunlight nor does it suffer from oxidation.
Images printed with pure carbon inks would in theory last for hundreds of years without fading. Paper used for the prints also determine the overall longevity. This is where natural 100% cotton rag papers are preferred. They are very durable natural material for image making.
In summary, pure carbon inks on pure cotton papers will give prints that have a beautiful tonal range and a longevity of hundreds of years. For more information click here.
All my B&W prints are printed (unless otherwise stated) using 6 dilutions of MIS carbon inks on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 paper – an excellent matt paper used for fine art printing.
