Finishing lacquers





This crystal clear AEROSPRAY B72 suits as a fixative for pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolours, ink, tempera, photos, prints, acrylic and oil colours. Due to the well-known acrylic resin Paraloid® B72 (often used in restoration)it has tightening and protecting characteristics and is also suitable as final varnish. It is highly lightfast, age-resistant and non-yellowing. Despending on the painting ground you will achieve an invisible fixation (on absorbent surfaces) or a semi-matt/ slightly glossy film (on non-absorbent surfaces). AEROSPRAY B72 has to be sprayed for several times from a distance of 30 - 40 cn from left to right and top to bottom (only in well-ventilated rooms). It contains solvents and must not be inhaled.





  • Fixative for charcoal and pencil (so they can be painted over with oil colours!)
  • Final fixative for charcoal, pencil and pastels
  • Also suitable as fixative for watercolour, gouache and aqua linoprint colours
  • Can also be used as varnish for inkjet prints, art prints and photos
  • Suitable as protection of gold leaf and other metallic foils
  • Final varnish for oil and acrylic colours when applied in several layers (semi mat – slightly glossy)
  • Shake well before use. Spray at room temperature by moving the can from one side to the other and from top to bottom and holding the can at a distance of 30 – 40 cm from the vertically positioned or slightly inclined and completely dry object. (Make the change in spray direction away from the picture!)
  • The level of gloss depends in accordance to absorbance of the surface, painting technique and the thickness of the film.
  • Sometimes an intermediate fixation of the art work is helpful.
  • The subsequent fixing of the surface of a picture produced using materials low in binding agents may cause the colour shade to become significantly darker. Using too much fixative frequently causes a loss of “lightness”. The product may also make the support, for example the paper, more transparent.
  • The fixative coats normally used in practice give no special UV protection to the paints used! For this reason, we recommend that you use high-quality and lightfast artists´ paints / printing inks from the outset as far as possible.
  • Any clogged-up spray heads are best cleaned using acetone.
  • Store in a cool and dry place. ? Protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50°C (122°F). ? Individual pre-tests are required.
