My latest work in progress.
Health and Safety in the Arts: Ink
Former health and safety in the arts tutor nag coming up, and no apology for it if it saves someone's life.
Dye absorption through the skin is one of the reasons why those working in the industries that use dyes have a higher prevalence of bladder cancer than the general population. In those industries, the unions and the health inspectors ensure safe as possible handling.
Artists do not have health inspectors checking how they work, so they have a responsibility to themselves and their family to use best safety practices. You don't 'catch' cancer by getting dye on your skin today.
You cannot see the effects of gradual poisoning. The accumulative effect of getting dye on your skin will predispose you to get certain types of cancer, and that might take ten years to show up. You won't see the ill effects while you are playing in your art mediums.
Just don't deliberately put known poisons and carcinogens on your skin for the love of art, when you can so easily avoid doing so.
On this subject, I hope no one pours resins or acetone in the house with children breathing the air.
Don't make excuses.
Protect yourself from poison hazards.
If you get non food -safe dyes, pigments and art materials on your hands, and don't like wearing gloves—get over it!
The only way to master a new skill is to learn how and to practice it. I'll be sharing my tips freely, and I hope that makes up for my lack of experience in narrating and editing videos.
Let me help you develop art skills. Feel welcome to comment, and share with me what you are eager to learn.
Cheers, Ryn Shell.
Ruth Randall's novel "A Judgement in Stone," opens with this line.
"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
The Stolen Years Series
From an Australian bestselling author comes mystery thriller of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
