I have some problems with my health, well, it's not a big thing, it looks like food poisoning. But my father thinks that the modelling material which i use for making earrings might be a bit toxic and my liver doesn't like it Cheesy. Indeed, it has a strong odor that remains a couple of hours in my room (unfortunately i don't have a workshop) and this week i've been working a lot making earrings.
After i finish them i paint them with varnish/lacquer, and i believe that this is a bit toxic, but this week i haven't used it and when that happens, i varnish them in the balcony.
This is the material i use: http://www.genovalaser.it/pics/images/i01/5262.jpg
Please let me know if you know anything about this Smiley

Do the bottles you use have a warning on them? Is there some way you can open a window or use a fan while you are working to keep the air circulating?

I don't use any bottles, i just modelate this material. I usually leave a window opened but the odor remains in the room for a period of time..

I would put a small oscilating fan in the room as well. Can you call or e mail where you purchased your materials and ask if there have been any health warnings?
