I seal my pic with mod podge I think that helps with the fading issues. Though some end up changing colors slowly after months. To avoid excees bubbles I stir very gently ans slowly but thouroughly. Still have some form but not too bad.

Are they drying in a well ventilated room? Here's what I found on the bubbles...

Bubbles.
One of the important signs that you are mixing Envirotex Lite well enough is the appearance of bubbles while you are mixing. This is normal. Envirotex Lite has been specially formulated to de-gas itself, freeing most bubbles, automatically. Occasionally, however, bubbles will become trapped in the surface. They can be easily removed by exhaling your breath gently over the surface, or by carefully sweeping a propane torch across the liquid at a height of approximately 6-8 inches.
I found that near the bottom of this page: http://www.lurebuilding.nl/engtechnieklite.html

Perhaps using a heat gun or hair dryer after application might help with the bubbles?

As for the fading, it probably has something to do with whatever ink or paint you are covering. Are the pictures printed on a printer, painted, or drawn? And with what?

Oh the woes of resin... This is great stuff, if you have patience. The bubbles are normal. The down side, you have to frequently keep checking back to make sure new ones don't form. I let it sit for about 5 min. Then check, if there are bubbles, I use a hand butane torch to heat a pop the bubbles. let it sit for a few and recheck, I keep doing this until I see no more bubbles. It's a pain. But, once done, it's great.
