First are photographs of each full sheet. They are too large to fit the whole sheet in the scanner, which was not very thoughtful. Next time - A4 sheets!
Then I will go through each scanned section so you can see what colours faded and which have remained - so far.

|All Daniel Smith colours. The only change is Aureolin, 6th on the top line. PY40 is known to go grey and you can see this very clearly in the diluted wash on the left. Please don't buy or use this colour.|
|All Daniel Smith colours. No fading evident after 7 months. Note that Quinacridone coral looks different in the scan, but not in real life. One to watch.|
|All Daniel Smith colours. It is difficult to see on this scan, but Rhodonite, second on the top line, has lost some of the rose and greyed slightly. Not recommended. All others are fine so far.|
|All Daniel Smith colours. I couldn't see any changes in any of these colours.|
|All Daniel Smith except the final Old Holland Emerald Green. I couldn't see any changes in any of these.|
