Health and Safety
I sometimes use Black Oil ( linseed oil boiled with lead) to speed up the drying time of the oil paints. Once the paint is dry if you sand or scrape the surface does the presence of Black Oil in the paint present a health issue with the airborne particles ?
Answers and Comments
Black oil contains lead so YES protection is highly recommended! Remember that inhalation of any type of fine, particulate
material is possible when sanding/scraping and that a dust mask should be worn during this process. You can always use a damp rag at the end to clean off any residual "dust" that remains on the surface and dispose of that accordingly. If you are unsure of how to properly dispose of lead-contaminated material check out our Health and Safety document in the Resources section.
