Pastel will always fade slightly over time, but fixative speeds that process hugely. Plus it hardly does a thing for pastel. It will still smudge as it would without fixative, all fixative does is still the top layer of pigment temporarily to the paper. It will still flake off over time.

Okay well, my fixative worked. It did not dull or yellow anything so it lives on. The pastel piece is signed and framed and ready for gifting.

I also finished my sister's gift. It too is framed and wrapped and ready to be opened tomorrow morning.

It takes a while to dull it's not an immediate thing ;)
