No it's not a picture of my new bra thank you very much! I have started to wear a dust mask when spraying primer or varnish. That is to say for the last couple of months I have been doing so. The one on the right is the one I have used each time. It's no trick of the light, it really is grey rather than white. In fact it's more noticeable in the flesh. But it's not really meant for spray it is a dust mask so the worst of the fumes do get through but the paint at least stops at the snout.
So if any of you out there spray in any kind of confined space it's worth nipping to your local DIY shed and pick up a pack. Less than £5 could help prevent your lungs being turned to shite. Having watched my wife's Dad die from buggered lungs I can confirm there is plenty nicer ways to go and for the price of a pack of figures you could do yourself a favour.
In honesty I had no idea it was having the effect it was on the mask, it's a real eye opener considering the mask is put away inside it's bag so I know the only way this got this bad was use.
OK maybe this is a slow post day but we have been out all day looking at Otters, Dear and Owls and just got back sprayed varnish on some French fellows and saw the difference in the masks and had to tell.
