Modeling Glass Safety

 

When working with dry Modeling Glass, wear a mask or respirator as you would with any loose powder. Do this when mixing it with glass powders, or when sanding a dry piece before firing.

Wear eye protection when cold working any glass, including fired Modeling Glass pieces.

The ingredients in MG are food-grade and non-toxic; however, gases are emitted during the burn-off stage that you may find irritating. Fire MG in a well-ventilated room.

Modeling Glass ingredients are rated as non-irritating to the skin; however, if you experience sensitivity, consider wearing gloves during handling.
