Dr. PH Martens

Posted by Integrity on 02/07/10


Just started spit shading/waterclor..Picked up some Dr. Ph Martens HYDRUS (still waiting for them to come in) And I noticed afterwards there was another Dr. Martens watercolor other than the HYDRUS brand...Is there a difference between the two and do they work the same? Any info would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

not sure about all kinds of ph marten's, didnt know there were multiple kinds, but the kind i've always seen is NOT lightfast against UV rays, even when coated with a UV protective varnish. not sure if the UV resistant glass from a frameshop is effective against the ph marten's fading, but i know that the varnish, without the glass, is not. just an fyi if youre concerned.

Any coating or glass can easily measured on its effectiveness by thickness... Most glass will be too thin. It can be advertised as UV protection because it is but it's not a block... It merely filters a given amount correlating to it's thickness. So i guess framing glass, even if advertised as UV protection is an insignificant protection. I could be wrong because i am talking out of my ass, but i have stuff sitting in my shopwindow which is way thicker than any frameing glass i have seen that has faded a lot. Sunglasses have also just a certain UV protection and you need dark polarized glasses for the best protection which is not really great for framing.

Best thing is to not have paintings and prints in direct or reflected sunlight but under artificial lighting.
