Sundries & Health and Safety

A sculptors’ studio is not complete without all the small essentials and should always be well stocked with spatulas, measuring equipment and mixing sticks for handling powder and liquid materials and there should always be a supply of PPE or personal protective equipment to protect against the hazards present when working.
Eye protection will protect the user from abrasion or spillage caused when working with powders and liquids, gloves protect the skin from the harmful effects of abrasion and chemical irritation. If using paints, lacquers and resins respirators specific to odour and vapour are used to give long term protection to the respiratory system and when handling powder materials a dust specific respirator should be used.
