Sennelier Traditional Fixatives are the artists’ essential spray cans that dispense a very fine mist to surfaces, thus preserving them from the elements over time. The fixatives have been specially developed for soft pastel (Latour), oil pastel (D’Artigny) and charcoal (Delacroix).
Delacroix Fixative – Is the perfect spray fix to seal and protect pencil and charcoal drawings. This totally clear, non-yellowing matte film fully protects against smearing. Specially formulated for work in pencil, charcoal and graphite powder. While similar to Latour fixative, it is stronger and therefore not recommended for soft pastels.
Latour Pastel Fixative – To protect soft pastel drawings and seal them to the support, use this resin and alcohol-based solution, specially formulated by Sennelier for soft pastels. The most transparent and non-yellowing matte film available, it leaves the subtle hues of pastel colors unaltered. Repeated light applications are recommended for maximum protection against smearing.
d Artigny Oil Pastel Fixative – Made from a vinyl resin and alcohol base, this totally transparent fixative leaves a clear and glossy film to protect oil pastels against dust and smearing.
