Topics: Fixative

Q.
If I spray fixative on a bracelet made with some dyed cylinder beads, will the fixative hurt the skin after it dries? What do you recommend to seal in the color - other than not using the beads? I already made some bracelets, though I can avoid using those beads in the future. Thanks.

A.
A non-toxic spray fixative, such as SpectraFix™, should not irritate the skin and will work to seal the beads.

Another option is a brush-on top coat. Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ sealer is specifically made to seal and protect dyed beads as well as polymer clay beads and gold leaf designs. Apply a thin coat with a paintbrush and let dry overnight for a finish that you will love.
