Labeling of Hazardous Materials We, at Himalaya Fine Art are concerned about your safety and intend providing complete product information including handling of potentially hazardous materials which sometimes becomes a necessity in arts. Himalaya Fine Art strongly advises you to carefully consider the end user when you purchase art materials. One should particularly purchase materials that are AP certified if a product may be used by pre-school or primary school classes or by physically or mentally challenged persons who may be unable to read or understand safety labeling, non-toxic products. This will ensure that even the most sensitive populations can safely enjoy art and craft activities. Young children sometimes chew crayons, drink tempera, eat paste, or lick paint brushes Adult products must bear the proper health and safety labeling to ensure that artists, hobbyists, and other consumers have adequate health protection and safety information about the art materials they use. Our aim is to identify risks and to assist our customers find materials that are safe and appropriate. When they must use hazardous materials, we want our customers to be informed, so that they will handle those materials properly. ACMI Certification The Art and Creative Materials Institute (ACMI) is a non-profit trade association of art and craft materials manufacturers. Since 1940, ACMI has been conducting certification programs in which product formulas are analyzed by renowned toxicologists and certified by ACMI as non-toxic or properly labeled. ACMI certification also ensures compliance to US Federal labeling regulations.
Products bearing the AP seal of the Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI) are certified non-toxic. A medical expert evaluates each product and its ingredients. A product can be certified non-toxic only if it contains no materials in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans, or to cause acute or chronic health problems. AP certification is reviewed by ACMI's Toxicological Advisory Board. These products are certified by ACMI to be labeled in accordance with the chronic hazard labeling standard, ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials Standards) D-4236 and U.S. Federal Law P.L. 100-695.
The CL ("Caution Label") seal of the Art & Creative Materials Institute on a product label indicates that although the product contains ingredients that are toxic or hazardous, it can be used safely with appropriate caution if the directions on the container or packaging are followed. Materials with the CL seal should be used only by those persons who are able to read, understand, and follow suggested safety precautions for handling those materials. Some art products cannot be made non-hazardous, but are necessary for certain creative activities. If used in properly supervised and controlled conditions, they can be used with complete safety.
Absence of the ACMI Caution Label does not indicate that a product is safe for use by children. Some of the materials sold by us may not be certified by ACMI as not all art materials manufacturers are ACMI members. Understandably, it would trivialize the health and safety issues in the arts if we told you that scissors are sharp. Our objective is to identify potential hazards and educate our customers accordingly, and if possible provide safer alternative products. Before using art materials, always read labels and instructions, and follow the manufacturer's guidelines for safe use. Young children should always have careful supervision when using art materials. We try to keep our customers informed on important health and safety issues, and your comments and suggestions on this issue are always welcome.

Paint Storage Tips Paint products can become contaminated with bacteria or mold, which can lead to a strong, offensive and in some cases, sickening odor. Paints such as poster paints and temperas that are intended for classroom use, and for children, often contain an organic binder that is subject to degradation if not stored properly, or used within a reasonable period of time. To guard against bacteria and mold, manufacturers of paint products add preservatives to these products. Diluting the product will decrease the effectiveness of preservatives. Below are some tips on storing paint products to maximize their shelf life:
    • Store the product in its original container in a cool, dry place and prevent freezing.
    • Date and rotate inventory, always using the oldest stock first.
    • Thoroughly shake the product before using.
    • Remove only enough paint for immediate use. Never return unused portions to the original container.
    • Never dilute the product. The addition of water dilutes the preservative's strength as well as the paint. If diluting paint to simulate watercolor techniques, prepare only enough for immediate use.
    • Avoid working directly from the original product container. Do not place brushes, hands, or other objects in the container.
    • After each use, make sure the cap is returned tightly and that the product is sealed before storing.
All paints are subject to eventual spoilage once opened and exposed to air and other contaminants. Most spoilage is a result of cross-contamination from common sources such as air, water, people, brushes and other utensils. Proper storage and usage will reduce potential sources of contamination and extend the life of your paint.
