Ditte, thank you so much for posting.

Now we can only hope that they can ship it to other countries in Europe. As it is a pump-spray (I think it is) it might be possible.

Thank you Ditte! I don't use fixative generally but I have heard so much good about this one I would like to get some for the odd occasion when I need to give myself some extra tooth on the paper.

Charlie, you can buy Spectrafix concentrate in small screw top plastic bottles and buy their sprayer separately. This is what I bought before it was available in Australia. No problems with the mailing at all. Just pour in the concentrate and add some gin or vodka. Their sprayer is not terrific, so a locally sourced small sprayer might be the way to go.

Dale, thanks. I forgot to check if this store had the concentrate variety too, must do that.

Definitely! Particularly in this heatwave we are having.

Dale! Upside down world, right... Would you want a houseguest or two? :-D Here it is nearly sunset, thick overcast, and sludge on the ground, temp hovering around freezing point. (Such a perfect word, 'sludge', it is definitely onomatopoetic!)

Charlie, I mailed to Jacksons regarding the shipping and here is their answer:


"As Spectrafix is not a pressurised aerosol we can send it overseas."

That is good news who want to order from Europe. :clap:

Ditte, you're a gem! Thank you so much!

As everybody speaks so highly of it, I must try it.

Seems England has different laws than the US, as Della couldn't ship anything with alcohol in it.

Charlie, I always have room for house guests. If you hurry you can still pick warm, ripe peaches and Santa Rosa plums from my trees. Sorry, the parrots just finished off the apricots and nectarines and the rotten starlings polished off the last of the mulberries and then poohed all over my washing!
