Did a search online to find out how to protect my charcoal artwork. They have been smudging and i have to put a lot of papers in between each painting to prevent staining onto one another. I thought of using lacquer, but seems like there is this great invention called fixative.
“After you finish your charcoal drawing, use fixative to preserve and protect your artwork. Fixative is a clear protective spray that should be imperceptible if applied correctly. It comes in an aerosol can and can be found at most art stores. Follow the directions on the can. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area!”
