HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE - making beads with a heat gun
HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE
For making beads using a heat gun
A lot of this is common sense but I need to say it: It is recommended that this technique should be done either outside or in a very well ventilated room and a mask should be worn to protect against any fumes or smoke, especially if you are asthmatic or have other breathing difficulties. The Tyvek itself will not burn or catch fire but you must be aware of the risk of fire when using any heat gun/tool (it can easily get knocked over). Also, the wooden stick may catch fire if you heat it in the same spot for too long!!
