Health and Safety
We take health and safety seriously in the studio. But please note that some materials are hazardous and need to be handled with caution. If you have any allergy or respiratory problems please get advice from your doctor.
Oil paints are not any more poisonous than any other artists’ pigment in watercolours and vary from colour to colour. WeI use an odourless solvent for cleaning brushes and also to make a medium for thinning the oils for washes. Please let Lin know if you have any problems with using this. This means we don’t have to resort to water-mixable oils! Hooray!
If you have any health issues or concerns you can access the manufacturers of the various materials used via any of the large suppliers such as
Jacksons Art Supplies: http://www.jacksonsart.com/
or Great Art: http://www.greatart.co.uk/
We also have a Westie dog and a cat, so if you have allergies to animals, this will be a problem!
