No more framing under glass! FinalFix is a casein-based spray fixative which contains beeswax and a few other natural ingredients to help the casein harden to a tough, moisture resistant finish. It is very similar to the Degas fixative, but provides a slightly deeper, semi-matte finish, and allows for damp cleaning and durable scuff-resistance. FinalFix contains beeswax and provides a slightly slicker surface than our Degas fixative, so if you desire plenty of traction to layer deeply, the Degas may be your best choice.
Perfect for a final protective layer, or to be used throughout your project. Non-yellowing formula is all-natural with no fumes and is workable and archival. Combines well with all drawing (not oil pastel) and painting media and may be used after SpectraFix Degas fixative, or by itself. Works beautifully to bring out depth in gouache paintings, and to finish mixed media works, or try brushing on our Natural Glass Varnish and Medium. Please be aware that the non-drying mineral oils in oil pastels do not combine well with beeswax, and we suggest the Degas fixative for oil pastels, which works beautifully. FinalFix should not be used as a final layer on top of acrylic or oil paintings, unless sealed with a final layer of acrylic or oil varnish. This is because it absorbs atmospheric moisture and acrylics and oils do not, and as a result it is possible that it may eventually delaminate from their surfaces.
