Lascaux Fine Art Fixative is the most versatile fine art fixative you'll ever find — and the only one you'll ever need. It fixes or seals virtually everything, including pastels, pencil, charcoal, crayon, ink, gouache, or watercolor.
Lascaux Fine Art Fixative won't yellow. It resists aging, and is non-matte. Use it on photos, prints, lithographs, proofs, lettering, and gold leaf to make them scratch resistant.
It makes an excellent initial sizing on wood panels and other rigid supports. It comes in a 12 oz aerosol can, and contains no flourocarbons.

Protects guache paintings without color shift
By Lorraine OB
from Madison, WI
My paintings of gouache on canvas, board, and heavy paper look dull with glass over them, so I display them without glass. I was troubled at how vulnerable the water media is. I tested a few varnish type sprays and found they made the gouache become thin, showing the dark underpainting in an unpleasant way. I even tried a thin coat of acrylic medium, carefully brushed over the dry painting and found the reds and violets totally shifted in color. I was very nervous to try this product, but it works great. No color shift, no disturbance to the paint surface. It takes about 4 heavy coats to get a reasonably protective surface, but it dries fast. I spray outdoors - toxic and smelly. But once dry, no smell. Love it. A bit expensive but worth it.

I have been doing pastel portraits for 45 years and experimented with many fixatives. Lascaux fixative is my favorite because it does not darken the flesh tones.

I plan to buy this product again
I use this product to seal my watercolor paintings after they have dried. I have never experienced any running or smudging of my colors when using this product.

I use Lascaux fix to seal dry powder pigments on Ampersand pastelbord. It does not kill the colors, the only product that works, wish it was more affordable.

Love the finish this product produces on colored pencil drawings. A nice solid fixative to preserve artworks for years to come. Will purchase again

This was a nice product. I was hesitant to use it on my gouache work, but it worked perfectly and did nothing damaging to the painting. It took several coats before I felt like anything was actually on the painting, but overall I think this was a good choice.
Best I've used
from Akron, OH
I do pencil drawings on vellum and have used many different fixatives. Some I liked some were just not anything I would use again. I never tried this product, mainly because of the price, but thought I would give it a try. It is exceptional! Very smooth finish that is easy to add over. I will definitely be using this again.
from Galesburg, IL
The best for charcoal or pastels. No speckles in areas of tone and no shift in color of pastels. I love this. It's worth the higher price because you won't be let down.
No Color Change
from Santa cruz
My instructor recommended this product. I have gone through an entire can. I do not see any color change when using this product. I use it after I am finished with a drawing. It keeps my pastels from smearing.
