How long would you trust these Claria type dyes on canvas with a topcoat added, Joe? No glass. Canvas wrapped around stretcher bars but sprayed with a topcoat with UV inhibitors.

I've never tried dye on canvas before, only pigment. Heck, the only 3rd party dye I've ever used is from Mike at Precision Colors. That was more or less just to see what 3rd party is like in the 1430. But all my LF 17", 24" and 44" have always run OEM, until I make up my mind what to switch them all to.

You are right! Defintely not for unprotected Canvas wraps. I do zero canvas wraps but instead high clss matted and framed prints and in that case, though I do print with K3 pigment inks, Claria Dye prints would hardly fade in a normal home environment.
