Free art materials health and safety guide

Every once in a while, we get questions from artists about the safety of the materials they use. The Artist’s Magazine‘s publisher, David Pyle (who’s also the author of What Every Artist Needs to Know about Paints and Colors and is our go-to guy when it comes to the art materials industry), wrote an article addressing 15 frequently-asked questions on health and safety in our May 2007 issue. We’ve created a downloadable PDF of this article to further share this valuable information with all of you blog readers.

Some questions that are answered in the article:
• If a product smells bad, does that mean it’s toxic?
• Can I paint with oils without using solvents?
• What’s that “AP” seal that shows up on lots of paint tubes?
