Reply To: Using Buff Titanium

Sandra Strait

Certain colors are fugitive (prone to fading), such as Opera Rose, no matter the brand.  I wouldn’t think that Jane used any of those, without noting that they were fugitive, though.

Personally, I haven’t had any problems with fading in my watercolors of any brand. The environment can make a difference even if the colors are in a closed book.  The paper can also make a difference.  I haven’t used Canson XL but I’ve heard mixed reviews and fading has been mentioned, so it could be your culprit.
