Thanks for the tip, Steve.
If indeed it "may be an irritant", I'm not even going to try it. My hands 
always get covered in glue when I work.

The only real irritant to my skin that I can't stop using is plaster, 
because it's what I sue for moldmaking. It still does the job as well as 
needed, for cheap. I'll move on to silicones eventually, but it still will 
require almost as much plaster. Unless I move to medical grade plaster 
bandages, which have nearly nothing in common with the cheap stuff sold in 
craft stores. 2 or 3 layers of medical grade makes a strong shell, while 6 
of regular craft variety don't even get close, and are brittle.
