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
Adult products must bear the proper health and
safety labeling to ensure that artists, hobbyists,
and other consumers have adequate health protection

appropriate. When they must use hazardous materials,
we want our customers to be informed, so that they
will handle those materials properly.
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
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

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
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
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
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.
