Sure Fire Way to keep PH Purple?

Jennifer@Indy.USA
>Hi All,

Does anybody know if there's a sure way to keep Purpleheart purple? Somebody recently told me that if you heat it up it will bring out a vivid purple that will stay. Said to do it with a torch....obviously being careful not to char your work.....Just wondering if this is well known, or if I'm about to embark on a stoopid move? I've had some purpleheart bowls stay a nice color...and then others that have faded miserably. Any suggestions out there?

Thanks!

Jennifer
