i only using a soft pastel
To tell you the truth I didn't know anything about pastels. I found a U-Tube video and looks pretty interesting. In the video the guy had something in a spray can but didn't explain what it was. I assume it's something that seals the pastels so someone doesn't smear it by touching it.

artists never spray a fixative over the work, this spoils the colour of the picture, a fixative is used between layers, and pastel paintings are stored under tracing paper or directly in a frame with a mount and glass
