Wondered what sort of fixative you recommend for charcoal. I have used hairspray in the past but wondered if there was a more "professional" alternative.
Hi - Hairspray gets too "gunky" and can discolor your art work. It may be cheap but the possibility of ruining art work isn't worth the risk. Anyway, that's my opinion. I was an art teacher and never allowed my students use hairspray as a fixative. Go to your local art supply store and ask to see what they carry. They should help you and answer any questions. Good luck!
