      SpectraFix Degas Spray Fixative

      $16.95

      SpectraFix Fixative is made with casein, water and alcohol and is based on an antique recipe used by French Impressionist painter, Edgar Degas. It a non-toxic, fully archival fixative for pastel, charcoal, conte, watercolor, gouache and multi-media techniques that seals and protects artwork while leaving colors brilliant. It is all natural, odor-free and can be sprayed indoors without obnoxious odors or unhealthy fumes. Dries quickly to to a hard, water-resistant, invisible matte finish.

      May be used on all papers, primed and unprimed canvas, wood panels, unglazed ceramic, stone, leather, glass, etc. Use under oil or acrylic paints to prevent underdrawings from smudging. Casein actually bonds permanently with the covering layer of oil paint, and similar to egg tempera, has been used for centuries for grisaille or colorful underpainting which can then be glazed with oil. It is not recommended as a final top coating for acrylic or oils.

      Available in 12 oz. bottle with finger pump sprayer.
