This is a topic that alot of us should read first, before we start on our costumes. We all have used spray paints, cut sintra, sanded plastics,resins,bondo and fiberglass. I do use a dust mask when sanding but when the dust settles i take it off, but iam sure there are still fine particles still lingering and that concerns me. I guess cleaning up after cutting Sitra is wise, istead of letting the dust sit there for days.
I used this modeling putty and never paid attention to the health warning on it. The brand name is Squadron White Putty. Its say the vapor is harmful and it contains TOLUENE, this can cause liver,brain and kidney damage. It causes birth defects. Then when you sand this product, i really believe your lungs will not be happy. Some of us that are starting a family or adding to it, must becareful
what products we are using.
So we should have new members and old members thinking safety. What equipment should be worn, dust mask, eye protection,etc... Also what products to stay away from, also what ingriedients to be cautious of.
Please add any safety concerns,tips or ideas....I know this might be a very boring topic but it i think its very important.
