Re: Re: Light that fades the cel (Mon Jun 7 02:09:59 1999
Actually sunlight is the worst. Normal window glass does not remove the UV so your nice cel is getting dosed. It is the cumulative dose that kills your cel. A minute of direct sun is far worse than fluorescent light but if you leave the cel out on your desk it will fade. I wouldn't worry about viewing your cels especially in their plastic since polyethylene and most plastics cut UV pretty well (on the time scale of viewing!). If you take them out to really enjoy them wear gloves to lessen finger oils and you should have them backed on acid free paper behind Uv glass. Pretty expensive unless you have deedlit! I have a nice UV glass frame and archival mount in my office that I switch cels into and out of depending on how lousy my week is going!
