What people say:

"This book should be on the desk of all art teachers who venture beyond paper and pencil as expressive art media. The cost of this book is easy on the pocketbook, and the information provided should ease the mind." — School Arts

"…if you have the first edition you may be tempted to forgo buying this one. However, safe practice is a moving target… what might have been considered safe a few years ago may not be considered so now, and there may be better alternatives. …a modest investment to keep up-to-date." — Theatre Crafts International

"Industrial hygienist Monona Rossol intends to inform artists who work daily with hazardous materials of the effects of various commonly used chemicals and toxins on themselves and the environment." — American Theatre
