Preserving Wood Color?

>I have recently been turning a bunch of cherry and black birch. The sapwood on the cherry is a creamy white when fresh, but over time turns a "rusty" color in blotchy areas.

The black birch turns uniformly brown from an almost white color. I'd prefer to keep both woods the same way they come off the lathe.

Anybody got a secret formula for preserving color in wet turnings?
