Posted in Action Figure Chatter

I found very recently that when I sand I nede to were gogles. I woke up this morning and could barely open my eiys because they were so swolen. Have any of you had the same problem?

Thats wat happened to me exactly word for word. The skin on the outside of my eyes is starting to harden and fall off now. This is the third time I've gone through this proces the reason I didn't start wearing gogles write away was because I thought it was my schulpt at first.

I created the sticky in the question/tip area for you guys to post tips and questions about safety issues.

I had two eye infections in a row, I think unrealted to customs, not totally sure though, because I barely sand. Eyes were crusted over, couldn't open them, had to pry them open with my fingers, ughh...horrible memories..

I think I'm gonna make a sticky where we can post safety stuff like this. I get throat infections easily thanks to years of not wearing a mask when sanding. Any particle is toxic but resin and bone (we use on our homemade knife handles) will really get you fast. I think my eye infection was from dust too. The cheap dispable masks are okay but you should get one with 2 replaceable filter cartridges that way you can use it for painting too. They're kind apricey but worth it in the end.

I normally use goggles and a cheap mask when sanding, basically because I get pieces of plastic in the eyes and the fumes are very toxic. But I never had your problem....

Are you sure it was plastic and not resin?

Resin is highly toxic when sanding to both your eyes and your lungs.
