How bad is hydrated lime on your skin?
Hi, Milk Fans
It’s bad, it’s bad, it’s very,very bad.
Hydrated lime or Calcium Hydroxide reacts very fast with moisture and will even react with the moisture in your skin, so cover up hand and eyes.
However, once the reaction between the milk and the lime is completed and the milkpaint is dry, everything is safe again.
