Hey there folks!
I would like to start painting again ( oil and solvent ). However in my new place and with a baby around, the only place where i could do it, is in the back storage. Which is about 6ftX5ft and 8ft high.
A Air ventilation with Hepa filter is not a solution due to space....
Will a Kitchen Air vent do the trick and keep me safe?
If anyone has info about it or a link it would be greatly appreciated.
Why do you want to use a solvent for painting in oils?
Solvents aren't really necessary. As a medium you can use pure linseed oil and as a brush cleaner use a fatty soap (I guess the english name for it is curd soap).
I myself don't use solvents.

I have also been looking around for a safe way to do oil painting, i'm trying these out at the moment:
How about getting a portable setup and working outside?
And just a warning from experience, be careful with materials once that baby starts toddling about. Some of the paints themselves can be very harmful.
