Testing fixatives for pastels on paper & canvas – Xrissart

Chrissy from Xrissart channel, has tested many fixatives for pastel. Maybe you can stabilize a little the pastel’s powder but fixative in my opinion it should be avoided because it makes change the colors especially the lighter ones. In this video you can watch how different brand of fixatives perform on paper and canvas….frankly, I’m not impressed, I still prefer put my pastel paintings under glass I need to protect them.
