I saw a lot of people sharing their personal hand burning stories so I'll share mine. Just about two months ago, we were doing an iron working seminar at my school. My friend was trying to use a blowtorch to rust his art piece. After about 10 or 15 minutes, he was done and he put his art on a table. I went over to clear the table and picked up the art not knowing how hot it was. It was really really hot and luckily I didn't drop it when I touched it or it might've broken the art. My hand hurt for the rest of the day but it could have been much worse.
