Black fx not staying black

Postby Kibby » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:18 pm

I've been making Cross cut sawblades with animal scenes on them using copper fx first the hitting a few spots and edges with the black. Recently though I noticed when I apply the black it looks great initially but after a few hours the black fades and after I clear it it is hardly noticeable on the piece. I've used it before with great success so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong now or what's going on. Any ideas?
