Callie and Judy

Thank you both for sharing.
Do you use the spray fixatives that are "Final" - poly acrylic sprays, rather than the "workable" fixatives(work in progress)?

If so, can the poly sprays be used over the dry "workable" fixative - then walnut oil film - then WSO with a tiny amt of walnut oil as the "fat" medium?

Alot of questions..

I used the clear poly acrylic, not the fixative. I had it dry for 24 hours and then added the thin film of walnut oil. From there I just applied the WSO in the same layer fashion that I do when working on any canvas. The painting is now 3 years old and has no problem that I can see.

I have used fixative on pastel paintings, but never used the clear acrylic over that because I always framed my pastels after matting them.

The best I can say is to experiment yourself and perhaps be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you for the detailed explanation. I'll have to buy some clear poly acrylic
and try it. Letting it dry for 24 hrs is very good.

Your model kitty is adorable.Bkg is beautiful.
