Fixative spray is a type of sealant that helps protect artwork from fading, smudging, and dust. It can be used on oil paintings, charcoal drawings, pastels, pencil sketches, watercolours and more. It’s an inexpensive way to keep your artwork safe and secure without damaging the piece itself.
One of the best benefits of using fixative spray is that it prevents dust build-up on the painting or drawing surface. Dust can easily ruin an otherwise perfect piece by settling into the medium and changing its colour or texture. By using fixative spray, you can ensure that your art remains free from dust particles for years to come.
In addition to providing protection against dust particles and other environmental factors, fixative spray is also useful for preserving the colours in your artwork. This is especially true for works done with pastels or pencils as these materials are prone to smudging if not sealed properly. A good quality sealant will help keep the colours vibrant while preventing smudges or other forms of damage from occurring during storage or transport.
Using a fixative spray can help protect your artwork from fading due to UV rays, moisture accumulation, dust build-up and more. Investing in a good quality fixative spray is highly recommended for all artists who wish to preserve their artworks for years to come.
