Question by Lexie: How do you keep pencil sketches from smearing/smudging?
I love to draw, mostly in pen.
But the few times i do use graphite or charcoal pencils, they smear to all hell and become almost unintelligible.
I would like to draw in pencil more, and i believe if i find a way to prevent the smudging, i would use them more.
I’ve heard spraying the drawing with hairspray will help keep it from smearing, but i don’t want to try it until i know for sure, so i don’t ruin a sketch.
Any help would be appreciated.

You can buy this traditional spray from Hobby Lobby or Michaels. It works great, I used it on my pencil drawings, and chalk pastel drawings. Try it!
