I keep seeing, over and over again, that people are suggesting to
use hairspray to fix their art from smudging. That is the ONLY THING IN
ART that crawls under my skin.
DON’T use hairspray if you value
your art at all. You are worth more than that. Don’t cheap out because
you don’t want to spend one or two more euro or dollars to get the good
stuff. Fixative isn’t that damned expensive.
This is a discussion that has been going on forever, it seems. I have been coming across it again lately.
I am sure you’ve heard a few of these. Hell, you may have said a few of these.
“I’ve used hairspray for years and nothing has happened.” “Hairspray is cheaper.” “Hairspray is easier to find.” “My instructor told me to use it.” “My friend uses it and he’s never complained” “There’s no difference.”
