Why choose Winsor & Newton Professional Fixative?
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.
