“I was on fire”


Description from Asia: Never use a torch in a hurry!!!I refilled one over the kitchen sink and it spilled butane into it. I was in such hurry to make a few headpins that without thinking I ignited it, the butane in the sink ignited then and I'm without one eyebrow, My colleges are going to have fun tomorrow ;)

    Oh my!! at least it was only an eyebrow! I am afraid of all flammable liquids. You light a match and the whole trail of liquid and the fumes burn back to you. I have had similar experiences with a camping cookstove. :-I Stay safe!

    That did teach me a lesson, from now on no torching in a hurry. I used to be intimidated , my son had to tech me how to use it at first, but after I saw the results there is no stopping now, I have to hide from him what happen, so I plucked my other eyebrow to minimum ;)

    Sorry to hear of the loss of an eyebrow Asia. I have to admit it is the best way to learn a lesson(if no one is seriously hurt that is). My hubby had a similar lesson learned. Was rushing opening boxes at his work with a exacto knife. He ended up with 6 stitches in his thumb. Bet he won’t do that again :-D

    Yeouch!!! I’m sorry to hear about your eyebrow. =/ It seems to be good inspiration but maybe you’ll get a safer muse for your next pick. ;p

    Yikes ! Bet you had a fleeting moment of panic, Asia – - glad everything turned out OK. Too bad we all have to learn our lessons the hard way – - but it inspired a great pick !

    See this is exactly why I said I was scared of fire on that mecklace and I had not even seen this!!! Geez Asia…art is not worth that!! Gorgeous pick.
    Like Becky I had a campstove scare. Jiffypop package malfuntioned, flames starting shooting up, I backed away freaking out, drunken abusive 2nd husband tried to make me grab pan handle & take care of it instead of just pouring pot of water on it. He almost stuck my hand in fire.

    Deb, you need to get into torching, if you are planning to do metal work.
