- THe most important of these is the range of yellow, orange and red pigments based on cadmium, which is a toxic heavy metal and is regarded by the California regulators as a possible carcinogen.
- Modern cadmium pigments use a coating technology which “locks in” the harmful pigment particles, and renders them relatively inert and harmless.
- ACMI, the regulator which sets the rules for warning labels on artists paint has rated cadmium colours “AP non-toxic” because of the coating.
- A sensible person might decide to use cadmium colours a bit more carefully than the other colours marked “non-toxic”. How would you keep them out of your body, just to be on the safe side?
- Cadmium is a cumulative poison which cannot penetrate the skin, is probably not absorbed by eating it, because of the coating as it passes through, but in the lungs it would remain for a long time, and the coating could break down, so if you really want to spray it, why not wear the recommended mask?
- While it does not penetrate the skin, paintY FINGERS on cigarettes can transfer pigment to the cigarette, which explodes the cadmium as you smoke: this is the most obviously dangerous entry point to your body. “
I am hoping to give you more information as to how and Where Cadmium poisoning can occur. The primary places that people get dangerous levels of Cadmium are Cigarettes. Smoking is very Dangerous. Cadmium in Cigarette Smoke A single cigarette typically contains 1-2 mcg of cadmium. When burned, cadmium is present at a level of 1,000-3,000 ppb in the smoke. Approximately 40 to 60 percent of the cadmium inhaled from cigarette smoke is able to pass through the lungs and into the body. This means that for each pack of cigarettes smoked, a person can absorb an additional 1-3 mcg of cadmium over what is taken in from other sources in their daily life.People who work in certain high-risk occupations may face an increased risk of cadmium exposure. This would include people who work with: Soldering and Welding.Industrial products for construction. People working in industrial or construction trades Sanding paintings or manufacturing paint. ( oil artists will often make their own paint and the pigments come in powdered form)Airbrush Artists: Use NIOSH dust respiratorArtist who sand art work: NIOSH dust respiratorIn Regards to paint Safety ( http://www.azarts.gov/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/SWAC-2009-Safer-Studios-Safer-Artists-Handouts.pdf ). European brands sometimes carry health warning labels if the Cadmium pigmentsused come from a factory that cannot meet these standards.Cadmium pigments remain hazardous if they are inhaled. I recommend you useNIOSH dust respirator if you sand surfaces made with a high percentage ofCadmium colors. Inhalation exposure can also occur while making paint by hand grinding cadmium colors. But there is no dust or fumes that come off paints from the tube.

Perspective is a set of tools artist use to create the illusion of Depth and Space in art. The illusion of 3 dimensional objects on a 2 dimensional surface .
Using lines that Converged at a vanish point on the horizon to show Size, shape and position of objects in art.
Artist tools for creating depth and distance in a Painting By Tone, Hue, and sharpness. Using depth of colors and contrast to push objects to the distance or place them in the foreground.
ZERO point perspective
A non linear Natural Scene often without parallel lines. Like a mountain range
the point at which receding parallel lines viewed in perspective appear to converge.
The horizon line
A horizontal line across the picture. It is always at eye level - Where it is shows where we are looking from high or low
One point perspective
Art drawing skill where objects are converging to a single Vanishing Point
A linear perspective in which parallel lines along the width and depth of an object are represented as meeting at two separate points on the horizon
linear perspective in which parallel lines along the width of an object meet at two separate points on the horizon and vertical lines on the object meet at a point on the perpendicular bisector of the horizon line.
