Went to the dermatologist and she gave me the unwelcome news: contact dermatitis to paint. Any other artists develop this?
So, this artist is trying to figure out how to continually paint without touching... paint! I am currently using a barrier cream, which helps considerably; I just have to continually reapply it. Gloves are absolutely for the birds.
Let this be a warning to you people. There are a lot of pigments that simply are not good for your skin. Remember, your skin is porous and soaks up whatever it contacts. Oh, boy.
