Protect your charcoal, chalk, graphite, and pastel drawings by using a fixative spray. Fixative spray keeps surfaces from smudging, fading, and flaking after a work is complete. There are two basic types of fixative, regular and workable. If your piece is not quite finished but you still want some smudge protection, or if you intend to layer individually fixed media, go with a workable fixative. This holds media to the paper but allows you to still make small adjustments in terms of shading, erasing and blurring. Regular fixative, on the other hand, holds your media in place without any room for flexibility. Get your fixative fix by browsing our roundup of the best products below.
