So I happened on an old miniature for DnD from a thriftshop/bookstore. It’s an imperial dragon from Ral Partha made in 80’s. I am ectatic to paint and have it in a display. The only thing is I read the labeling and noticed when opening this, it contains some lead in it and some oxide that has formed along the darker parts. So I’m just asking before hand what is respectable amount of fear and what should I know about handling the lead parts? Particulary, where could I find the lead content of pewter used by the company if anyone knows? Second, I’m planning to prime and paint this though what should I do about the oxide that’s formed and eroded parts of this model away? Would it be just on the surface and could I scrape it off or would the lead dust be too dangerous and should I just prime and paint over it? Is it safe to use and play in games of DnD if painted over and wash after use?
Not planning to work on this at the space.
