Sennelier Oil Pastel Fixative has been specifically created for oil pastels and wax crayons. It allows sheets to be laid on top of each other without sticking, which is ideal for transportation and for framing.
This Sennelier Oil Pastel Fixative also protects the surface from dust, which can simply be wiped off with a soft cloth or brush. It is based on a synthetic resin and alcohol, and does not penetrate or dissolve the colour. Sennelier Oil Pastel Fixative is sold in 400ml aerosol cans.
- Key features:
- completely colourless
- slightly shiny
NB Best results are achieved by applying sparingly in even layers. To prevent the nozzle clogging, upend the can briefly after use and empty the valve.
Price per can.
The instructions are clear and correct...it does work best in succesive light coats rather than one heavy spray. Best of all once varnished/fixed it is possible to continue with further layers of paint or pastel without disturbing the work underneath.
Incidentally this also works well with watercolour, and will also fix sprayed-on underglaze colours on ceramics making it easier to load such works into a kiln without finger-marks. Presumably it will also fix chalk pastels in the same way.
