The longevity part helps me a lot as I'm having problems keeping the
image *stuck*.

I've asked this question in the past but is there any thoughts on how
to keep an image on glass solid enough to be exposed to extremely high
temperatures (thousands of F)..Clearly without some protectant the
silver will melt off far sooner but am wondering if there are
processes to protect the image from extremely high heat.
