SCHMINCKE MEDIA: The Correct Fixing of Pastel Pictures

Handling

    • Shake well before use.
    • Fixative for pastels is ready to use, but can be diluted with alcohol / ethanol.
    • Product should be applied with a special fixative diffuser.
    • Please clean tools as soon as possible with alcohol / ethanol.
    • The product is based on alcohol and cannot be mixed with those based on mineral spirit.
    • 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, especially pastels or chalks, may cause the colour shade to become significantly darker. Using too much fixative frequently causes a loss of “lightness”. The product may also makes 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 from the outset as far as possible.
    • Close immediately after use.
    • Store in a cool and dry place.
    • Individual pre-tests are required.
