Mrs. Stewart's Fade Test Results
So far Mrs. Stewart is shaping up to be a bosom friend that will stand by me through a variety of circumstances. She is apparently indestructible. I conducted a two week fade test and there is no discernable difference between the left side of the card that was kept in a drawer and the right sight which was taped to a north window with good sun exposure. For comparison I tested Noodler's Baystate Concord Grape during the same period. As you can see, Concord Grape fared badly by comparison. I am happy that it didn't fade off the page but the side that was exposed to the sun is no longer purple. The good news is that if you like a nice coral color you can easily arrive at a lovely hue through this particular purple ink which is readily available.
