LF – Lightfastness rating (6 – GOOD, 7 – VERY GOOD, 8 – EXCELLENT). V – Vegan-friendly.
Derwent uses the Blue Wool test (ISO 105) to evaluate lightfastness. Lightfastness refers to the chemical stability of a pigment under long exposure to light.
A scale of 1-8 is obtained, with values of 6 or higher being considered to be highly lightfast and, under museum conditions, will not fade for 100+ years.
