Comments about Sennelier D'Artigny Pastel Fixative:
I was looking for a product to seal oil pastel that would not change or dull the color. This product works great and dries with a nice but not obtrusive sheen. The color stays clear and radiant so other than a semi-gloss finish the work remains the same. It puts a protective barrier that keeps the oil pastel in place without being noticeable. The spray seems much more toxic than other spray fixatives however and smells strongly while drying. Be sure to wear goggles and cover your mouth/nose or wear a respirator best! Build up light layers to cover rather than just one coat.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works great with OIl Pastels
from Madison, WI
I use this fixative on all of my Oil Pastels, and have had no problems. The colors and values stay true, with a slight shine that makes the colors more vibrant.

I use this product for all of my pastel paintings. It goes on clear and doesn't drip or run! It is a really good value.

Used on small sulptural encaustics
from Oakland, CA
I made some interactive encaustic pieces and sprayed them with this. Prior to spraying they were sticky and would leave color marks. This left them with an even, slightly gloss but sealed surface.

This product did the job for me. My oil pastelle painting is now dry and non smearing after 4 light coats with this fixative. The best I've used.

This is a very good product. I used the senniler oil pastels and they are highly wet. when you spray regular fixative they get sticky. But this final fixative drys them completely.

It worked really well for me.
from Denton, TX
I liked the way it worked. For the kind of work I do, 4 light layers, letting them dry well in between, gave me the most desired result.

I love this stuff as an oil pastel fixative, especially on Ampersand pastelbord. And whoever thinks it doesn't work or isn't effective, best idea is to give it a few light coats & leave it alone (i.e. don't touch or rub it) & get it framed.

Gloss finish for Sennlier Oil Pastels
By Skip Stone
from Phoenix, AZ
Leaves an even gloss finish on Sennelier oil pastel drawings. Works great for what it is designed to do. Its a personal choice, to fix or not. I never fix chalk pastel. I have not found a chalk pastel fixative yet that works, however, this one does work on art created with Sennelier oil pastel. I only use Sennelier oil pastels. No other oil pastel is even worth working with. Just the opinion of an art instructor. Like all art supplies you have to try them to see if it fits your style.
