As for inhalation of leaded enamels, I don't think opening
a window is sufficient. I suggest wearing a mask of some kind.
I agree, a window is not enough. I use leaded enamels in my
jewelry. I wear a mask when I work with my enamels and dark
safety glasses when I use the kiln. When it comes time to clean
I vacuum my work area as opposed to sweeping to keep those pesky
leaded enamel particles from floating around my shop. I also
have a ventilation system…and I am in the process of expanding
that to other areas of my studio. I also have an air purifier.
I love my work…but I am not willing to give up my health for
