For the holidays, I received a wonderfully hand thrown mug with my Arms
embossed on it. I added some colour with acrylic paints, and the overall
result is very attractive. I was going to protect the paint with an Acryllic
sealer, but as this is a vessel to be used for drinking, I read the warning
label first. Acryllic sealer is harmful or fatal if swallowed itself, so my
questions are these: Once the sealer has dryed, is there still danger of my
ingesting it if I drink something from the mug? Is the sealer only dangerous
if I ingest it in sufficient qaunitites, to where the minute amounts that I
may come in contact with after it has dried pose no threat? Are there
different types of acryllic sealers that are more non-toxic? And if all else
fails, how else may I protect the paint and still be able ot use the mug?
I thank you for any advice. I hope some good artisan out there with more
knowledge of paints than I can assist me.
