Unfortunately, while the product may be good the packing of the product was not. It arrived with a broken lid and almost all of the product sprayed out. When I contacted Art Supplies initially they said it wasn't their issue and they would refund me half the price of the product. All they had put in the box were two small scrunched up newspaper pieces and everything including the other product was rolling around the box. I'm giving them 3 stars only because when I complained again of the inadequate packing they returned the full price of the product. I have photos to show what packaging was included and the broken lid of the Micador fixative.
This product makes it easier to draw with smudging mediums, as one can spray the drawing and then add some darker tones without having one's hands/fingers full of smudges
or without smudging the sketch already laid down on the sketching medium. It does everything like the description/video says. I only used it on my graphite and charcoal sketches as well as on my finished watercolour paintings, but I guess it will work well with all the other mediums in the listing. It is very easy and convenient to apply. Art made easy for sure!
