Hairspray To "Fix" Artwork

Here's a nifty use for hairspray. Lightly spray a bit of hairspray (aerosol, not pump) onto charcoal, pastel chalk, or lead pencil art work to "fix" the medium in place until you can get it framed, stored, or permanently fixed with a commercial product.

I did just this when I took art in college. It worked well for fixing charcoal drawings and was much cheaper than artists' fixative products.

I also use hairspray on water color paintings. It helps to avoid accidents if you spill or splash water onto your painting . Another plus, it prevents the fading of wc paintings
