Fixatives? [R]1 year, 10 months agoFuckMeUpButtercup posted submission on bulletjournal.
May 16, 2018
Hello all, baby bullet journaler here. I'm taking a relatively non-committal approach with my bujo; I'm tracking library books and due dates, material to review for my partner's and my podcast, finance trackers, and makeup swatches. That is where my question comes into play. I've seen others do swatches in their journals before, and all have indicated they need to be set with some sort of fixative. I've heard hairspray, setting spray, and tape. Of those three, tape is really the only feasible thing I could use. However, are there any sort of fixatives you all would recommend? I heard perhaps going into an art supply store and purchasing one, but I haven't been able to get any information on what kind exactly or what I should be looking for specifically.

I haven't used it for makeup, but I've been using this stuff for a few years for art-related projects. One quick coat works like a charm and keeps most of my projects from smearing and transferring. On things that have a lot of pigment, I sometimes use a second coat just to be sure.

I've also used AquaNet hairspray in the past and gotten similar results.
If I were to use tape, I'd think just a clear packing tape of sorts could work? Hmm. Now I'm curious. Haha. Regardless, good luck with it all!
Starting a Journal.... [R]1 year, 11 months agoh-e-a-t-h-e-r posted submission on Journaling.
April 16, 2018
I decided that I want to keep a journal. This is the first time I have ever been serious about it, but I'm super excited! I have a few questions. First, do you write in pen or pencil? I mainly see people writing in pen, but I prefer pencil. Any downsides about pencil? Also, do you wait for a certain date to start journaling? I'm not sure if I should start my journal today or wait for May 1st or the first day of summer break or something. I still live at home with nosey parents, so any tips for hiding my journal and/or keeping the fact that I have a journal secret? I'm already stressing out about my journal, although I have yet to start writing. I'm hoping it's less stressful and more relaxing as time goes on.

The biggest downfall to pencil is it's not permanent, it can so easily be smudged or potentially worn down and you won't be able to read it anymore. However, you could use something like Krylon Spray Fixatif to help preserve it. I mean, there are notebooks and files from decades ago that'd been written in pencil and they're still legible, so if you take care of it, it should be fine.
Don't wait for a particular day or time, start right now!
As for privacy, I'm gonna repeat the advice I gave to someone else. I don't know how old you are, but if you're old enough to make purchases on your own, the company Vaultz makes locking boxes in a bunch of different sizes and they're pretty affordable. You can search on Amazon for "Vaultz lock box." Depending on how many journals you have and the dimensions of the book(s), another option would be a locking bag, the kind companies use for night deposits. Also something you can find on Amazon, I think "locking money bag" should bring up different options. The bag would be easier to hide, you can put it inside your pillow or under your mattress.

There is a name for the specific ype of spray just to protect "smudgeable" work - "Fixatif"
Here's one from Krylon. https://www.amazon.com/Krylon-K01306-Workable-Fixatif-11-Ounce/dp/B00023JE7U
People use it when they "finish" a section and want to protect it as they move onto another - but are still able to go back and add additions on top if desired. Its basically invisible.
I imagine once your are totally finished, a flat clear laquer would seal everything and prevent it from ever being changed again.
Keep up the great art!

Preservation? [R]2 years, 11 months agofkwillrice posted submission on watercolor101.
May 3, 2017
I made a painting as a gift for someone. It's on canvas. Is there some sort of fixative I can use to preserve it? If it were something that could be framed I would just leave it but since it is on canvas I feel like something needs to be done.
Also, I will be sending this in the mail. Is there anything I should do to help protect it?
May 3, 2017
You did a watercolor on canvas? Interesting choice, how'd that work out for you? Normally I'd say what you're looking for is a [spray fixative] (https://www.amazon.com/Krylon-1306-Workable-Fixatif-11-Ounce/dp/B00023JE7U) (they sell these at art stores), but I have no idea how they work with canvas. I normally ship larger pieces in bubble mailers, and those clear plastic sleeve bag things work wonders, but I have no idea how thick your canvas is.
[This shipping method] (http://reddotblog.com/how-to-ship-paintings-a-step-by-step-guide-for-artists-and-galleries/) is the approach I would take in your shoes, and if it were me personally I would skip the fixative. Good luck!
Fixative for Conté Pierre Noire? [R]2 years, 12 months agokellykart posted submission on ArtistLounge.
April 4, 2017
I used Conté Pierre Noire on Canson Montval watercolour paper for a drawing recently but when it came to choosing the right fixative I'm still confused. Has anyone tried to use the Sennelier Delacroix Spray Fixative for Pencils and Charcoal on conté crayon? It says on the can that the fixative is not meant for use with soft pastels and the Pierre Noire seems halfway between pastel and charcoal so I don't know if it would be a good idea. What fixatives do you guys use with conté pencils?

[Help] Would it be a good idea to use workable fixative on a synthetic wig? [R]3 years, 1 month agodaisyfairy42 posted submission on cosplay.
Feb. 2, 2017
Mostly a curiosity question, but as I was packing for a con this weekend and planning to wear my first wig for a full day of a con for the first time, I stumbled upon my workable fixative. I was wondering if it would be fine to use on a wig to just hold it partially in place, or if it would damage the wig. I'm not doing any crazy spikes or anything, but thought it might add a nice bendy nature to the wig if I did it, making it easier to style. (The wig is actually for a Professor Ozpin cosplay from RWBY, so nothing crazy, just making sure the back sticks out and the front has layered bangs.)
Feb. 5, 2017
It's not really a wax, it's more of a spray. And yeah, gonna be the same style for a while. Was thinking about just trying it out to see what it does on a small section.

We're using a replica wooden airplane prop for a wedding guest book. Need some advice on how to preserve the signatures. [R]3 years, 6 months agoscrewikea posted submission on woodworking.
Sept. 25, 2016
We're using this replica Sopwith Camel prop as the guest book for our wedding, guests will sign it with a pen or marker of some description, then I'm planning to finish over the signatures to protect them.
It appears to be pine or possibly spruce, and has an eggshell or semigloss clear topcoat of some sort over a not-very-deep penetrating stain, and paint on the tips of the blades.
How should I approach this project? My first inclination is to sand it very lightly with a very fine sandpaper just to rough up the surface a little, have folks sign it (we're thinking probably white, silver, or gold ink for contrast on all areas), then maybe use a spray on clear coat to avoid runs in the ink.
Anyone have thoughts on possible pitfalls, or suggestions for ink types to use or avoid?
Sept. 25, 2016
I'd have them sign with it sitting on a table or something - a lot of those things will run/drip if you're pressing too hard. Obviously you'll want to test a few different markers or whatever.
Fixer is all I've ever heard it called - some brief research tells me what you're looking for is artist's fixative. Stuff like this, but there's a whole category of them. Different fixers for different mediums (chalk, paint, etc). The main idea being to keep stuff from smearing, but if you plan on putting it up on a public wall or something in the future, you'd cover that later with a topcoat so grubby finger oils won't cause problems.

My brother's birthday is coming up so I have to make a purchase on Amazon (since he lives out of state, and I have Prime shipping, why would I shop anywhere else? lol) so now is a good time for some gifting!
Couple parts for this contest, you can enter both but only win once.
Just enter the raffle phrase and link an add-on item you'd like to have - Birthday boy because that's what this is all about! My little brother is turning 21!! Woo!! He's all grown up! Sort of! But not really! Yeahh.
Tell me how you spent your 21st birthday. Best/funniest/saddest/most stand out story will win something $10-$15ish but please don't embellish/lie to make your story seem "better", I'll probably be able to tell and you won't win. Upvote and comment on other entries - this will give me something to base my decision off, plus it doesn't hurt to socialize a little!
This will end at some point on Thursday evening or Friday morning, depending on when I decide to order... his birthday is on Sunday and there's no mail that day of course. Anyways, happy contesting. :)
Jan. 13, 2014
I hope he has an excellent birthday!
Let me think.. What was I doing when I was 21.. Hmm. Pretty sure I spent it on the phone with my cheating ex boyfriend who lived in Canada all night.
Not the best story, but there it is. I didn't have a social life so I didn't go anywhere and I don't drink soo I didn't get drunk. :(
