Artist Fixative Spray - A protective archival art supply


An artist fixative spray is used on dry media artwork to stabilise the colour or pigment of the surface. It is a colourless medium specifically designed to protect charcoal, pencil, pastel and chalk drawings from smudging and collecting dust. It also improves the lightfastness of pastels. Using too much fixative, however, can result in a colour change to a pastel drawing as the fixative affects the pigment.
For pencil drawings, the application of a spray artist fixative in between layers will add tooth on top to allow you to continue working.

ade with resin or casein, an artist fixative spray evaporates quickly, prevents yellowing and dries to a transparent, low sheen finish. The spray fixative can be layered which makes it a fantastic art supply for charcoals and pastels, allowing an artist to add further depth to their artwork.

Tips on applying artist fixatives:
1. Use a fixative spray at room temperature in a well-ventilated room.
2. Shake the can well before use.
3. Your artwork should be horizontal or slightly tilted. Hold the can 25 - 30cm from your work.
4. For an even coating, start spraying at the side of the work and spray from top to bottom.
5. Apply light coats to minimise any potential colour change.
