Just wondering if anyone has had to do a paper mache project and how you approached it. gluten-free flour is way too expensive to use, and I am very leary about soaking my hands in regular flour (not to mention getting it everywhere-it is so messy!) Luckily, my husband is helping out, so I am sitting out. Has anyone had a reaction after making paper mache?

At work I am often doused in flour for making pizzas, breading chicken, or thousands of other items, plus I am a Pasta Chef, will contact with Gluten have adverse effects or does ingesting it only affect a person?

unfortunatly for you, yes contact with it can cause problems. The reason for this is that flour particles are so fine and can fly up in the air and into your nose and mouth. Once they are in your mucous membranes they can be ingested and even ONE MOLECULE can cause damage.

A friend of mine that has Celiac, has been working in bulk foods at the store she works at, and her Dr. said the reason she is not getting better is because she is inhaling the flour (gluten) on a daily basis. So... after the first of the year she will be looking for another job.

Ouch, if you have celiac disease, you better find yourself a new job, this one is likely (literally) going to kill you eventually!

I just substitute rice flour for regular flour when making paper machie. I use rice flour and then add water to get it really thin and dip newspaper strips into the mixture and put on balloon. It hards nicely in a day or two.

I can't believe they would not let you wear a mask! Is this the same place that made you work in the bakery even though you were getting sick? Thats crazy. Isn't there some law against that? I think if you need to wear a mask then they cant let you go over it. Am I wrong? :unsure:
