Sorry, No can do! The dyes that represent original colours in a
photograph can't possibly reproduce these colours. If you need to
document them before they fade, I would suggest getting a matching
colour swatch (this shouldn't be hard to do). Store the reference
swatches under the safest circumstances, as these colours ave very
fugitive. At least you'll know what you have lost.
