First of all, always read the manufacturer's product safety publication that comes with the product. Once they dry, most two-part resins are nontoxic. Always read the specifically tailored Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) that comes with the resin you purchase to make sure. You can also check out the US Consumer Product Safety Arts and Crafts website. Here are some basic resin safety tips:
- Always use resin in a well-ventilated area.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes by wearing safety glasses or goggles and latex or vinyl gloves.
- Protect all work surfaces from damage by working over newspaper, wax paper or a drop cloth.
