This goes a long way in explaining some of your previous posts.

Well you could have chosen worse art materials to ingest. But, the inks contain(depending on brand/quality) shellac and denatured alcohol which arnt to good for the kidneys or liver. The carbon black used for color also contain PAHs which are carcinogenic.
Still not as bad as if you where say, buttering you toast with lead white house paint.
Thats just for black though, if you are ingesting colored inks there is a long list of heavy metals and chemicals which do bad things to your body.
A good general rule of thumb for you might be, if you paint or draw with it dont eat it.
I'm just using black indian ink, it says on the side of the jar "no health warning required", so i thought, hmm why not and I developed a love for the taste.
I am officially making a second request for tin-foil hats for everyone...
Lmao I got industrial supply in my cabinet.Originally Posted by Ilaekae
That was the first official request...
Hey now, Van Gogh cleaned his brushes with his mouth too you know, and he was a totally grounded individual...
...I want a foil hat too.
In keeping with this forum's mission, might I suggest a "best design" for a tin-foil hat? Critiques would include effectiveness, appearance, coolness, etc. Nothing used but tin foil...
Which of these is on it?Originally Posted by Daz
CL (toxic) usually has the "no warning required" phrase next to it. Toxic or not, use soap and water, or ink cleaner.
DAZ, have you heard of the phrase "natural selection?" Maybe "survival of the fittest?"
