How do you seal colored pencils?
Do I need to seal a colored pencil drawing? Even a light coat of fixative or varnish will provide protection for your colored pencil drawing. Environmental dirt, dust, and other similar substances will come to rest on the varnish instead of on the drawing itself. A light dusting with a duster or dry clothe is all that’s necessary to remove the dust.
How do I keep my colored pencil from fading? Keep colored pencil drawings from fading by minimizing their exposure to bright sunlight and UV rays. You can do this by using a protective varnish, framing the art in a UV frame, or storing it in a dark place.
What is the best way to store colored pencils?
- In a pencil box or cardboard box.
- In a repurposed glass jar.
- In repurposed metal cans.
- In a DIY caddy using toilet paper rolls or paper cups to hold and separate different colors of pencils.
