Don't give the bottle a bl**dy good shake if you haven't put the lid on properly.

Complete nightmare, just sat and looked at it in disbelief, what a numpty and what a load of clearing up and discarded pot towels.

Completely b*lls up my torching session too.  Embarrassed

BE WARNED DON'T DO IT  !!

Oh no! Poor you!  I totally sympathise with you.  I got all revved up for torching session in the "summer"  only to have the same thing happen.  I remember Sally Carver's wise words ringing in my head, "You haven't arrived in beadmaking until you've thrown a pot of bead release over yourself"  or something like that  Roll Eyes Tongue Wink   Betcha won't do it again though will you.  : Lips sealed Kiss

And don't lift a can of borax flux by the lid unless the lid is screwed on... I didn't even realize what mess it had made until the flux dried and revealed white stains of borax all over the place. Worst of all, I did it in a silver smithing class with a dozen witnesses Embarrassed

Related to that - don't use a brass brush to remove borax stains from a padded chair seat. It ruins the cover.

I learned a lot that day Wink

If you want the release to mix thoroughly, not only make sure the cap is on tight but put a fugly bead into the bottle before shaking. It acts like those little ball bearings in expensive nail varnish bottles.

Yep, been there, done that and still have the stuff all over the shed walls to prove it.  You know you've arrived now as a bead maker.
