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. The paper used for the prints also determines the overall longevity. This is where natural 100% cotton rag papers are preferred. They are a 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 longevity of hundreds of years.
All my B&W prints are printed (unless otherwise stated) using 6 dilutions of carbon inks on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 paper – an excellent matt paper used for fine art printing.
Carbon on Cotton print is a great gift for passing down to the next generation. Use the contact page to get in touch with your requirement.
