Pastel Freezer


Clairefontaine Pastel Revolution

Clairefontaine Pastel Revolution : Pastel Freezer brings a whole new freedom to working with pastel, charcoal, graphite and chalks. It is a liquid spray solution that freezes friable pigments, allowing the paintings to be displayed without glass or the need for acrylic protection. The pigment is frozen, without altering or saturating the surface but remains porous to receive other layers, which a normal fixative does not allow.

The Pastel Revolution Freezer is a liquid spray solution to freeze soft pastel powder on Pastelmat and on all surfaces (canvas, wood, cardboard…) provided that they are prepared with an absorbant ground.  It keeps a satin and matte finish, is abrasion and humidity resistant, without yellowing in the future. Many professional pastellists are already convinced by the Freezer which allows them to transport their works rolled and to frame them as a painting without glass.

Artists will like the fact that they can paint on big size of canvas with soft pastels and freeze the powder while keeping the pastel effect.


Place drawing down on flat surface and spray entire drawing from 30 cm from above After application of the Freezer, drawing may be continue to be worked on, once completely dry. Sometimes 2 or3 thin layers of Freezer are necesaery for freezing the drawing completly. Approximately 30mL is required for freezing a 50x70cm sheet.


Make sure that you do not spray vertically. Also leave flat and wait until the sheet is completely dry before moving to avoid risk of dripping. As with all fixatives, the Freezer can modify the colours of the paper and of the pastel. Avoid spraying too close so as not to blow away the pigments. The freezer is effective only on Pastelmat and not on other papers (except if they are prepared with an absorbent ground). The freezer is effective only on an absorbant ground and not on other grounds.
