Hi, I am an authoress who is about to start doing resin art in September.
My main concern is I want to use my bedroom for resin art creating – I am well aware of air ventilation and having a respirator for safety due to fumes.
I work with Non Toxic Resin but I just wanna know if it is safe to do resin art in my bedroom?
You see I live with my parents and my bedroom is my only private area where I can do my own thing without being in anyone’s way.
It is a small room. I am planning on using two fans for air ventilation – one blowing on me and one blowing the fumes away from me, plus have a crack window, PLUS a respirator mask
I read somewhere that fumes remain in the air for 8 to 10 hours – is that true?
And is having a crack window during that time with a fan blowing on me good enough and safe enough for adequate air ventilation?

I just want to make sure I am safe and doing what is safe before I begin resin art making

I’m glad to hear you are taking resin safety seriously. While the resin is curing, there is a potential for fumes.
I have a video in this article that explains how I handle room ventilation when I’m creating with resin: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-frequently-asked-questions/can-epoxy-resin-make-you-sick/

I actually watched your video a few times and loved it. You actually helped me out a great deal.
Just wanted to hear from you personally what you thought.
I will be doing small resin art projects (Silicone Mold Casting & Resin Jewelry) – I plan to make resin book marks, photo blocks, keychains, etc – small stuff not huge enormous projects.
I read and heard somewhere when dealing with craft resin and when working with small resin projects all I need is a respirator mask, fans for ventilation, and a cracked window (when the weather is warm). But I just wanted to hear from a resin expert if that really is good enough for small resin craft and resin jewelry projects for my own peace of mind.

Yah, I am. I just want to make sure I am being safe before I start and something unexpected happens. I just wanna make sure I done everything I am suppose to do safetywise and is not my fault.
