(The hairspray is a great, CHEAP fixative for pastel chalks and mediums like that, if you didn't already know...)I think the trick was drying the page so fast that it didn't have time to wrinkle, but the absorbent Ground worked wonderful as well!

Another fantastic product I have found for using to protect text from coming off of the page along with masking fluids is JoSonja's All Purpose Sealer. Now this is a fantastic, thin product, originally made to use on wood and things of that nature for decorative painting, but I had some left over from a project, and it works fantastic as a base coat for your altered pages of text. It protects your text and found poetry on old pages from lifting and ruining all of your hard work! It is also less expensive than the Golden products such as the Matte Medium and other things of that nature. It dries to a satiny, ultra smooth and clear finish and takes acrylics, markers, Sharpie's, colored pencils, and other mediums really well. Of course, acrylics work the best on it,
because that is primarily what it was made for, I believe.
Ok, just wanted to share these two results with you, and hope they work out well for you! Let me know any results you get with these as I love seeing your work also! Happy arting!
