Works great! :)

Comments about Sennelier D'Artigny Pastel Fixative:
I had been told that oil pastels couldn't really be fixed. Not so! I followed the advice of others here & used many very lightly feathered coats after letting my art sit for a week or so. They dry very quickly and 3 coats for the harder oil pastels or 5 for Senneliers left the art dry to the touch with no smearing. I am new to oil pastels and enjoy them greatly - and couldn't be more pleased with this fixative.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
Works great with OIl Pastels

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.
