    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Carolyn wants to know: "Is there something I can spray on to protect chalked images? One time I used hairspray and it seemed to work. I just wanted to know if there was a product for this purpose. "
    A: One option is a workable fixative - it's "workable" because you can add more layers over the spray after it dries, and it will preserve what's already down. Another option is a matte spray sealant that's archival. Krylon is a brand I trust for fixatives (Workable Fixatif) and sealants (Matte Finish). Hairspray does hold chalks in place, but it might yellow over time.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Liz has an idea for the Zentangling tutorial: "I love zentangling. I have quite a few of mine in my gallery here on SCS. I love doing them with Sharpies on cheap Dollar Tree white plates and baking in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. They turn out fabulously."
