There are all kinds of fixatives and brands of fixatives out there to choose from! Fixatives for drawings, paintings, pastels, charcoal/graphite, workable and permanent, Krylon, Sennelier, Lascaux, Grumbacher, Blick, Spectra, and on and on… it can be really confusing!


In this video, I test out workable and permanent fixative – and demonstrate surprising results in both graphite and vine charcoal!


The two I test out for you are my old stand by, Krylon Workable Fixative and one specifically formulated for graphite/charcoal I’ve been wanting to try, Sennelier Delacroix Fixative (Permanent)
