- Sep 15, 2003I can't imagine alum in solution...liquid....would require a mask. If I
have to alum in a mask I think i'd rather quit. I can see it when the
particles of powder fly around, but not while liquid. Same goes for
pigments...not good to breathe but once in liquid paint? I couldn't imagine
it is a problem...and if it is, so be it. I'd rather be comfortable. I just
hold my breath while spooning out the alum....can't stand the sneezles! But
paint surely doesn't bother me. I have also decided to marble sans gloves,
only wear them while aluming because it makes my hands crawl.

...........Alum here for marblers will be in two different states--the
first--where it is powder and you are pouring the crystals. The
second--where it is liquid once mixed with water......Would an ordinary
surgical paper mask work? I don't know.
