Does what it says on the tin, and makes a very good job of it. Excellent for protecting charcoal, pastel and other smudgable drawings, goes on evenly, doesn't stain, and dries invisibly. Have used other makes, and this is one of the best.

I've a can of this which I've had for about thirty years now and I'll use it, umm, very infrequently. It IS a superb product though.

For day to day working I just use hairspray, my current being:
VO5 Hair Spray - Extra Body Hard to Hold 14 Hour Hold 250 ml (Pack of 2) which I just reviewed AS a fixative. If anyone has come across a better alternative I'd be delighted to learn of it.

The Winsor & Newton is a little better for "gallery" quality work, though of course never quite as good as no fixative at all; it does tend to flatten the character out of a rich pencil drawing and (I don't use them myself) it turns pastels and chalks into crayons and kills a lot of the "freshness" BUT it's a darn sight better than having a work ruined by smudging so if it's not going under glass _immediately_ but might, someday, then the W&N is good insurance. It's very clear, non-yellowing in my experience (whereas paper usually isn't) and tends to wrinkle far less than the cheap substitute.
Of course I'm just a hack illustrator whose drawings are usually just a stage in producing something in a different medium so fixing with hairspray is a sensible alternative. Your mileage etc. etc.

In conclusion:
First class product. If it's essential (difficult choice) I doubt one would find anything better. Expensive

Ideal for giving a light fixative to drawings and pastel work. I only use a light spray to avoid colour changes in work. A good quality product

Good product, would like a larger version, sometimes use hair spray as an alternative which suggests the fixativeprice could be lower

Although a small can this fixative lasts a long time. It works really well and you can use it between layers of colouring and can therefore colour over it once dry. Only problem is the smell. Even using it outside it still stinks.

If you are drawing in mediums that rub off easily, then you really do need a fixative for any you wish to keep. This simply puts a thin invisible coat on top of the work to stop it getting rubbed off while in a portfolio or being shown off to friends! As you would expect from W&N, this is a good quality product, and a little goes a long way.
