hi guys :)

i am wondering if the 'no odor' rubber i see on sites really does not have any odor? i have birds so i have to be careful of cutting anything with a lot of smell because fumes can kill them.

i really want to make rubber stamps but i have not tried yet because i am fearful of the odor they create.

Hi Nadia, when you open the pack they arrive in they have a smell of vanilla, when you burn them they smell of rubber. Are they odourless. No they aren't. You shouldn't get too much smell back though if your extractor is working correctly, only the occasional whiff and on your fingers when you take the piece out. It shouldn't affect your birds health, remember years ago they used to use the little blighters down in the mines, many lived til ripe of age.
