This makes the life of the drawing longes as it prevents the patricles of the dry pastel to fall off the surface of the painting. The need of fixating is due to the dusty nature of dry pastels and the fact that the particles of the dry pastels are not that sticky and have a low resistance to thouching and wind and so on.
