Hello everyone. ^_^
Well, as the subject said...
I have decided to permanently close my doll face-up commission finally. This is because of many reasons and one of the biggest and most important is my health reasons.
Although I have never done any face-up since I have been staying here in London, but my health gradually reveals the effect from doing face-up continuously for two years. It doesn't a very serious problem that appeared but I would not like this to be continue anymore as I afraid that my health won't allow me, even I use a heavy hazardous spray mask, gloves and all the protections.
The problem is, my respiratory system is much more sensitive than ever. I previously have a little allergy of dust and small particle before but it is now pretty worse, even a "not-that-small" particle from trench coat of somebody on the tube could make me sick for weeks. That's it... for example. @_@
Anyway, I don't say that face-up will "totally" make your health worse. It is obviously seen that this is different for each person. Somebody can do face-up continuously for years without any problem. What I recommend is, if you love doing face-up, or want to start doing it on your own, the best thing is to PROTECT YOUR HEALTH.
Don't save a little money (compared to your health) to trade with your long term health. Buy the proper gas mask for the right job (ask the store staff for the airbrushing job or hazardous spraying job mask). Be patient with that Star Wars mask while wearing it and be patient keeping up wearing gloves and long sleeves clothes even on the very hot weather day. Make sure you are not working in a close loop ventilation room (e.g. your flat's studio room which has only one way for the ventilation to flow in. Air conditioned room is prohibited!). Don't trade any convenience with your health. It is definitely not worth it, believe me.
For any question on face-up, I will be always welcome to answer, also any question about health protection especially about room ventilation. Don't hesitate to ask. If I could help you answer any question you may have, I definitely don't hesitate to answer you as well. ^_^
Thank you so much for all your supports for the past years! ^_^
See you guys!
