Mal how would it be used on a crocked face? You know. The people with one eye lower than the other. ;)

Just got up from the computer, turned, looked outside and it's snowing. Good thing the shop is well insulated and heated.

Is the maple stained or from a naturally dark section?

Mal stays awake until about 1:00 or 2:00 am Pacific time so is only just going to sleep just before the sun comes up in your neighbourhood.

I think he is a pen blank vampire with dark sunglasses....

Thanks Bob. I wasn't tying to make substitutions only to see if they serve similar functions in different worlds. The art fixatives appear to be more refined and developed than the finishing arena.

Bob would the fixative be the art world’s equivalent to a wood sealer? Seal the surface below and provide texture for the next coat to adhere to.
