Re: Have you tried the new Spectrafix Natural Glass Final Fix spray?
I take lessons each week from a teacher who dabbles in everything (acrylics, oils, watercolor, pastels, multi-media, etc). It is a small group class where each person is doing his/her own thing, and I have been taking my pastels to work with. She is the one who introduced me to Spectrafix... and the Florasol bottle to spray it in a fine mist. We were talking about the fact that I had ordered the Natural Glass last week, and she brought out a pastel she had done and had hanging on her wall. She had used JUST the Spectrafix Fixative and had applied several coats, letting each one dry completely. When she wiped her hand across it, no pastel came off. So you may want to begin with the fixative and try several light applications. I do think the Natural Glass is a heavier coating. On another site, an artist by the name of Esther, who has posted a you tube video where she demonstrates her use of the Spectrafix products, said that she had better results with the Natural Glass if she had already sprayed a layer of the fixative first. So I followed her lead on the one I did yesterday of the poppies. As I practice more with it, I will be glad to share. I really like the fact that is is all natural, so I can spray it indoors without worrying about fumes.
