I have a chemistry student that is looking to do a research project around paint pigments. Essentially they want to look at the elemental content of the pigments using LIBS. The first step in the process is “pigment grinding” using the pigments, linseed oil and a etched glass plate.
The art professor she is reviewing this project with mentioned to me that she will need to wear a respirator even before I have begun to look into the details of this project.
Bone Black, Mars Black, Lead White, Flake White, Titanium White, Vermilion, Alizarin Crimson, Naples Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Ultramarine blue, Cobalt Blue
Can anyone offer advice or suggestions?
