I just read in a middle school text book that kids should have dust masks when
carving plaster, so I'm thinking that would do for plaster with vermiculite
too. I'm planning on trying out the vermiculite recipe in the next day or so-
and I have pearlite on hand too, so I'll give that a shot and report how it
goes. writes:
