i reached out to gamblin about safety of their products: Dear Deborah, Thank you for contacting us. An air purifier is unnecessary for working with our materials. Gamblin uses non-toxic natural drying oils as pigment binders and painting mediums including refined linseed, poppy and safflower. Our Artist Oil Colors are made with refined linseed oil and dry pigment. Drying oils absorb oxygen out of the air and dry naturally. Because they do not evaporate, there is no health hazards associated with them regardless of the type of drying oil or how it is produced. All drying oils have some odor, but this odor is not harmful. Cold Wax Medium is made with a simple mixture of beeswax and Gamsol OMS. Gamsol Gamsol allows painters to work in traditional and contemporary techniques without compromising artistic possibilities, permanence, or their well-being. Gamsol is also reusable, and non-toxic when used as recommended. Most solvents available to artists are produced for the industrial paint industry where solvent strength and low cost take priority over safety. Gamsol is different. It comes from a family of materials used in products that come into more intimate contact with the body, such as cosmetics, hand cleaners and cleaning food service equipment. For an artist, there are a number of factors to consider when judging a solvent’s safety. Aromatic solvents are the most harmful type of mineral spirits. Gamsol is an odorless mineral spirit which has all aromatic compounds refined out of it – less than 0.005% remains. In addition, Gamsol has a slow evaporation rate, a high flash point, and is not absorbed through healthy skin. Unlike other solvents, Gamsol is readily biodegradable and contains no Hazardous Air Pollutants or Ozone Depleting Compounds. Fresh air is the best source of ventilation. Open windows and doors whenever possible to encourage natural air convection in your working space. Natural convection in most buildings will allow for adequate air circulation using Gamblin oil painting materials. You may improve natural convection by setting up a fan near your painting area blowing away. This will create a cross draft between you and the painting surface where the greatest potential amount of solvent evaporation occurs. Dispersing solvent vapors means a lower concentration will be available to breath in as you paint. I hope this helped. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Kind Regards, Mary Mary Weisenburger | Product Specialist | Gamblin Artists Colors | t 503.235.1945 x119 |gamblincolors.com 16pxlinsta 16pxlFB 16pxlvimeo
The Gods and Goddesses "The ancient Germanic peoples were polytheists, meaning they believed in multiple gods. The gods feature prominently in their mythologies and worldview. Because of this, believing the gods are real and have influence over our lis an important part of being a modern Heathen. The specific names and aspects of the gods of Heathenry vary by regional tradition, but regardless of which influences you choose for your own reconstructed modern Heathenry, worshiping the gods can be handled in the same general manner. Like with the ancestors and house/land wights, many modern Heathens feel it is helpful and/or appropriate to set up shrines or altars in honor of a god or several gods. While forming a close personal relationship with one or all of the gods is something that will be up to each individual Heathen (it is not a requirement of being Heathen), giving offerings and/or sacrificing to the gods during a blot or other ritual celebration is considered standard practice. How and when you worship, pray to, honor, and/or offer to the gods is an important part of establishing your own hearth cult." .
