Poor Results with Mixed Media
from Torrance, CA
Comments about Blair Spray Matte Fixative:
Used several coats of this workable fixative on a mixed media piece.The section with watercolor pencils seemed to be smudge-proof upon touch. Hours later, I brushed on an polymer gel, and the watercolor pencils simply disappeared. This fixative was not effective in stabilizing the water-based media. Disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I ordered this to use in a college setting. It is important to have something low-odor in this environment. This works well and I have not noticed any odor.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I DO always buy this product.
from Woodstock, NY
This matte spray fixative is the only one I've used since 1986! I did have to use something else once while my local art store was ordering Blair M. Fix. Spray for me and the products I tried just did not do the job I was used to. They didn't come close. There is a specific way to spray historical prints as I do and if done correctly, all is wonderful when the watercolors are applied over the fixative. One thing negative about it is that one must use a mask when spraying it as I do and also I only spray my prints outdoors, never indoors. There is an odorless version of Blair fixative but I find it not quite the same as I'm used to. This matte spray #100 has always been the only one I prefer.

I use it for all my finishes drawings. The smell isn't too strong reminds me of nail polish remover (only spray one to two drawings every 2 days)So far it's doing its job of keeping the pictures protected.
Blair Spray Matte Fixative
By susan the painter
I am always looking at different fixatives to use in an all around manner. This spray fixative WORKS. When they say you will not smug, they mean you will NOT SMUG. I find the spray excellant for all mediums.
Blair fixative ruined my sketchbook
from New York NH
Blair fixative is a Terrible product. It ruined my sketchbook of color pencil and ink artwork. Causes ink to instantly bleed through the paper to the next page. Unbeleivably, it causes color pencil to bleed through as well. Damages paper, making it wet and translucent. And this was with a light spray from 18" away at a low angle over the paper. Ruined weeks of work. BE FOREWARNED AND AVOID THIS PRODUCT!!!
Merchant response: We are truly sorry to hear about your experience with this fixative. We hope you'll reach out to our Product Specialists so we can look into this further. You can reach them weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to hear from you soon!
Works Great with Chalk
By Terry Smith Studios
from Little Rock, AR
My only experience with it so far is with aggregates like chalk on the surface of a painting. For that it works great on both oil and acrylic paintings.
it is a very excellant product
my husband uses this product in on some of his drawing that he has done. He uses this product so that the pencils that he uses doesn't rub off on his handand it also makes his drawing better.

This product has the least odor of all fixatives I've tried. It works great on pencil and pastel pencil drawings.

BOO!
