Art Spectrum Colourfix Pastel Primer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Primer for every medium I used this primer on pastel paper. This primer did help my work and my lungs, I did not need to use a fixative. I also used it for an arcylic painting and it made the surface of multimedia paper have great texture for my piece. This is a great primer for any wet medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds a new dimension to my boring work I saw a video of someone using colourfix and knew I had to try it. I made a watercolor on clayboard and wasn't happy with the look, so I enhanced it with acrylic, let it dry and painted Colourfix Pastel Primer on th piece so that I could add beautiful final touches. It is clear, so it allowed me to add beautiful dimension on those areas that I wanted to pop. I am very pleased with the result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives great texture! I have used this product before to coat boards for more textured pastel works. It can be rolled or brushed on. When brushed on in several different directions, it adds quite a bit of movement to your painting! I have had my students also try it and some of them find their work has improved greatly with the use of the pastel primer....especially in black! It adds quite a bit of drama!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Match I coat both sides of smooth bristol 300 paper with this clear pastel primer to make one beautiful homemade pastel paper. I love the texture and ability of this surface to accept a wet underpainting before applying layers of pastel. It is a joy to work with and costs less than commercialy prepared sanded surfaces.

Would this work over a printed photograph that used toner? I'm wanting to overlay oil or chalk pastel and retain the full hues of the colour and not have it lost because of the photograph.

Asked by: Jessie8565
That would depend on the type of paper that the photograph is on. If it's just regular printing paper from the printer it will not work. If the paper is a more substantial almost cardstock then you would be able to apply the primer. Please keep in mind that this primer is opaque and will completely cover up anything that is underneath it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I am looking for a way to create a moderately textured background on paper. I will be painting over this background with oil pastel diluted with a little gamsol. Will this product give me that kind of texture?

Asked by: Froggy
Yes, you can build up layers of texture by applying a layer and letting it dry and then applying the next textural coat. These quick-drying acrylic primers bond solidly to almost any clean paper, canvas, card, plastic, glass, ceramic, or even metal. All colors can be intermixed to create new shades. White can be tinted with acrylics, Liquid Spectrum Inks, or Art Spectrum Gouache. I hope that this information is helpful.

Can a watercolor ground be used on paper, etc. to make it accept pastels ? Would it smooth out watercolor paper so I can use pastels on it? And use this ground on Bristol paper so it will accept pastels? Opinion?

Asked by: Abbi
Thank you for contacting us. Yes, you can apply Art Spectrum Colourfix Pastel Primer to watercolor paper or Bristol paper. Once the primer has dried to the paper you will have a toothy texture that is great for pastels. Art Spectrum® Colourfix™ Primer is a fine tooth, quick drying acrylic primer which bonds aggressively to practically any clean, dry surface – all types of papers (300 gsm or heavier recommended), canvas, card, ply, plastic, glass, timber, ceramic and metal. Art Spectrum® Colourfix™ Primer can be applied with brushes, sponges, rollers etc. straight from the pot. The Clear Colourfix™ Primer allows the natural surface or underlying colours to remain visible, whilst providing extra tooth for more overlays. Use Clear and other Art Spectrum® Colourfix™ Primers for mixed media techniques and experimental art and craft works. It can even be used as an adhesive for collage. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

can I prime metal for colored pencil with this?

Asked by: Djdurn
Yes, this product can be used to prime metal for a colored pencil drawing--but the surface works best with pastel.The primer is made with acrylic resin and grabs onto any clean and dry surface. You can use it on canvas, plastic, ceramic or metal (it is advisable to do fixation tests before using on non-porous surfaces) as well as papers of 300gr or higher. Application: Mix well before use and apply directly from the bottle with a brush, roller, sponge, etc.
