I use Schmincke, and you can paint on top of it, so yes, it is workable. Also, it seems to be alcohol based, and I can use it indoors during winter. It doesn't darken much.

Whatever you do, don't use Beckers fixative, it totally kills paintings.

a product i have used .

' workable ' can mix with pastel on surface .
' final ' can use pastel over pastel on surface .

( i think that the difference is the proportions of acrylic and solvent )
