I dont have ventilation either
i make sure my work area is very clear - no surplus tools or rods littering the desk
then i wear a really good mask - the best i could get, it has special filter pads etc
then i clean up with a wet paper towel before i ever take the mask off.
also, i'm very careful with how i use the enamels, like one of the posts above i have the metal sifters with the ribbed handle and you run the little bar up and down the ribs instead of shaking it.

i remember years ago when i was at school we did copper enamelling - no mask, no ventilation and the last classes mess was always all over the desks, we swept up with a dustpan and broom if it got too messy!
