Re: My NEW solution for layering & fixing oil pastel

just wondering if you have ever tried skim milk or a solution of? I read that Degas and Van Gogh used skim milk to fix their soft pastels and I have used it both on soft pastel and oil with good results altho I can't help but wonder what the long term effects will be on the oil pastel. I have experimented with straight skim milk and a solution of milk with alcohol and milk with water. I'm wondering too if non-fat milk would work as it probably wasn't available during Degas' time.
