Product Questions and Answers

Can I use this product over a watercolor painting on a canvas? I'd like to 'seal' the work but I'm afraid of the effects.

- Asked by Katherine on 20-Dec-13

The Grumbacher Workable Fixative Spray is not for use as a sealer as it provides a workable surface for a painting with water-based colors. We recommend using the Spray Clear by Blair or the Lascaux Aerosol Spray Fixative by Savoir-Faire instead.

Turns a Metal Door into a perfect paintable surface for murals

Great for my charcoal drawings and my sketchbook pages.

This is an excellent fixative for low fire ceramics. It seals horse hair, pit fired and raku sagger work and gives a slight sheen to the surface. A+++
Rated by: Charles R. in Carthage, NC
Excellent fixative for horse hair technique on pottery. Leaves a nice finish and no rough surface.

Myston is the only fixative worth using. It's the only one i use period. Unlike the other conventional workable fixatives you can by - myston doesn't leave the surface of your art with a plastic surface. It fixes your artwork without destroying the surface quality leaving you able to draw on top of it as if you didn't use a fixative at all - even after a generously heavy treatment of it. Forget wasting your money on that Krylon garbage - their workable fixative is horrible. Myston is the only fixative you'll ever need. Try the difference for yourself.

This product is excellent for sealing inkjet printed media. The spray pattern is very consistent and easy to control, always provides a very uniform misted-on coating. Highly recommended as the first coating on inkjet printing as it will not attack the ink.
Rated by: Rita B. in Denver, CO
Grumbacher's fixative worked very well for my protecting my charcoal drawings without changing the color or texture of the paper. It did not work as well as hoped on acetate, as it took a long time to dry and didn't really render the surface more "workable" for water-based mediums.
