Recently there have been some comments about having a stained glass studio is a person's home. Gosh, this is really not a good idea unless the studio is in the basement with exterior ventilation, and can be closed off from the rest of the house. Working in your home with lead came, and or lead solder....need to take precautions......wear a "special" apron that is removed before going into the main part of the house, as well as shoes. wear gloves while working with lead, and wear a mask......wash hands when done for the day, and change shoes. Just remember to take precautions!!!!!
