Ideally, it should be packed in a box suitable for hazardous materials, double boxed, packed in vermiculite. It's over reacting but it is what the PO requires.

I guess that would be simple enough, thanks.... is it flammable or just messy?

It's not flammable and it can be frozen ( a great way to keep mixed goo actually). If packed in vermiculite or equivalent, should the container leak, it will be absorbed presumably by the vermiculite.

You could have some interesting times with the EU on toxins.

Yes, Copenhagen this time of year is wonderful- I live two hours away...
Temperature around 32f constantly, sleet mixed snow blowing at 28 knots, seven hours of daylight, see the sun a few hours every three weeks, Carlsberg beer, Covid 19 lockdown and strict travel curtails.
On the other hand,Scandinavian summer is the best day of the year as we say...
Just kidding

When Scott moved to N Ireland, a lot of consideration went into what the EU would and would not allow coming in his crates. I would imagine those considerations exist in Denmark. Michael do you have thoughts on that?

Yeah I skipped shipping the Hxtal. I donít use it that often so Iíll just have to get more when I need it... or if I need it.

Winter is not the funnest, but when you're blowing glass itís great. We were there three months this summer and had great weather. Itís not like Hawaii but Iím looking forward to a change.

My next challenge will be setting up a new studio. Michael, do you know anyone selling a studio?

No Pete, I dont know,itís obviously the ordinary things- lead cadmium etc.
Im sure there is unlimited info on the web.
I know you've mentioned EU regulations before, but on a personal level Ive had very little trouble with authorities running my studio.

So, change the beer to Ranier and you're moving to Seattle.
