Re: Preservation?

From: Nick Bantock


I tend not to worry about the next 500 years. But I don't want the stuff fading in my childrens' lifetimes. So I fix my drawings using non-scented airosole hair spray--it's about a tenth the price of fixative and is pretty much the same thing. The collages I varnish with a plastic based varnish. First coat gloss to pull the blacks out, second coat matt to stop the paper edges picking up to much light. Nick
