Winsor & Newton Masterclass: Using A Fixative With Charcoal

Made with a colourless aerosol formula, Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative is specifically formulated to protect your artwork from smudging and dust. It has a non-yellowing solution and dries to a low sheen.

Simply spray an even layer over your work to prevent it from smudging or dusting. Use two or three very light sprays and wait several minutes between each application for optimal results. The fixative dries quickly and is completely transparent

Why choose Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative?

Ensuring easy and even application, Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative is perfect for use on charcoal, pencil, pastel and chalk drawings.

How to make the most of your fixative

Pastel drawings have a tendency to be fragile as the particles on the paper are not surrounded by a binder. Adding a coat or two of fixative will give that little bit of extra protection, saving your artwork from smudging if brushed against by mistake.

A light coating of fixative will help to stop pastel dust sticking onto glass once the picture is framed. It also improves the lightfastness of pastels. However, using too much fixative can cause considerable colour change to your pastel drawing as the fixative wets out the pigment.

How to use Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative

Use at room temperature to ensure an even spray and make sure you use it in a well-ventilated room. Shake the can before use.

Keep your artwork horizontal or slightly tilted and hold the can 25 - 30cm from your work. For an even coating, start the spray at the side of the work and spray from top to bottom. Apply light coats only in order to minimise colour change.
