Subject: fixative

> I bought 10 cans of Grumbacher Matte (Tuffilm Final Fixative)and I am
kicking myself for doing it! Two kids sprayed their pastel portraits done
on buff Canson paper with it and it has settled onto to the paper with a
white opague/semi transparent film. WHAT is this stuff!!!! (Contents says
it contains acetone, xylene) Does anyone know what purpose this substance
could possibly be used for if not a transparent fixative that students can
layer their pastels, pencils and charcoal?
