How do I protect my hands from various media?

Bad Hand Blues

If you're tired of ending your day with dry, dirty hands, never fear! Help is here! Eliminate the effects of drying pastels, graphite, and other media on your paws by wearing surgical gloves. The gloves fit tightly and allow you to work with little compromise for the feel of the paper or the medium. Use a good hand lotion before wearing the gloves to get your hands really smooth while working.

Beware - you may be tempted to finger-paint!
