In drawing, a fixative is a liquid, similar to varnish, which is usually sprayed over a finished piece of artwork, usually a dry media artwork, to better preserve it and prevent smudging.
Artwork media requiring fixative include drawings done in pencil, charcoal, and pastel.The fixative is applied lightly, without wetting or soaking the paper. Once the fixative has been applied, it provides some protection against smudging and ultraviolet light. Ashrad Aerosol Fixative is a final fixative which is colourless and provides a matt finish.
