Grumbacher® Workable Fixative, Matte is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Doesn’t take many coats to set in place. Also offers another layer to continue working without messing up what you've previously done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aggressive brand loyalty! 1pt from Gryffindor! I came in looking for my regular Kryolan® Workable Fixatif (but forgot which of the 7,496 stores I get my supplies at carried it), and was disappointed to find that Grumbacher® holds a monopoly on Michael's fine art sprays. The lack of options (for levels of quality/purposes - not every project needs to be archival) was pretty irritating. Were I still in art school, that $5 difference would've meant deciding between finishing an assignment or getting to eat dinner (so, you know, worth considering when working with your brand contracts). Not being given a choice is nearly /all/ of my beef with this product (God I hate that word. It just doesn't sit right on the tongue, y'know? /product/). That all being said, it did work exceptionally well, especially considering it was being tested against something it wasn't designed for - namely, priming the surface of a vinyl doll head for repainting, and holding several thin layers of chalk pastel and dried washes of watercolor (without making them brittle or flaky against the uncompromising flexibility of the doll's head). Tl;Dr: Good for archival fixing. Not good for cheaper projects. If you carries experimental/beginner/reasonable alternatives to this obnoxiously high-quality fixative, it would have been awarded slightly more fake internet points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect! Helps to seal the oil pastel and let's you add more if required to complete. Also gives a slight glossy look if one is required for your finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smelly, but gets the job done This fixative is the first one I have ever tried, so I can't really compare it to other brands. However, it does serve its purpose and keeps artwork in place. I use this for my chalk pastel pieces in my drawing pad, and it helps keep everything in place. My main issue is the overwhelming smell. I recommend going outside and having the paper sit outside for a few minutes to air out. Be careful not to do it when there's lots of wind or the fixative will just fly in the wind...literally.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Damaged my art! I bought this product to protect a 74 year old pastel painting. There were no directions on the can. It said to go online for directions. I’m glad I did because it said this product can dissolve some pastels. I tested it first on the corner, and indeed it did dissolve the pastels! They get 1 star for at least warning me, but that warning should also be very large on the can. Why do they even make a fixative spray for pastels if it damages them?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this fixative on colored pencil drawings. It takes 2 coats but improves the appearance of my drawings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A win for soft pastel! I used this to seal layers of soft pastel between work sessions. Goes on quickly and smoothly, dries especially fast, and has no lingering odor that I've noted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protect your work Great product! Does not stain your work! And you can work over it. Would recommend this product to friends.
