Thanks guys...Katherine, Colin, blue, M, and Vivien.

Not sure what you mean by "fix", blue...as in fix it to eat or fix to frame. The latter has been done. I fix all my drawings/pastels as I frame under acrylic instead of glass and that can get a lot of static and pull the pigment off the paper.

Carol.....'fix' to be framed was my comment.....but I see that by your response, you do before framing....any special fixative you prefer for the pans?....blue.....:wave:

Lovely orange for the berries, papery look on the covering to the berries and great soft blue for the glass. Well done.

Very nice work of colored pencils and pastels. I thought it's watercolor. Very well done.

I use a workable fixative, don't remember the name...comes in a can. It can be bought at Dick Blick. I think they are all pretty much the same.


Thank you for the lovely comments Paula and Janet :wave:
