I don't worry about lead free for myself, I'm an adult. But in regards to my children, (aged 3 and 7) I don't like them using lead miniatures.

Lead free for the 7 year old and plastic for the 3 year old.

The 7 year old is only allowed to paint a lead minaiture IF I have done the miniatrue preparation and I have already sealed it in undercoat.

All the kids have to wash their hands in sugar soap and are not allowed to eat or drink at the painting desk.
