    Just increase the percentage to get the color you want. It is not fading. It may not be as intense due to the percentage used.
    That photo was taken the day after it was fired. It is the same color today after 5 years. Maybe what you think is fading is the reflection of the sun or where it is breaking on the rim and high spots. It is on porcelain.
