How To Make Glasses From Bottles.
A bottle is made as a container with three main parts namely neck, a body and mouth where the neck is more slender than the body. By cutting of a stream of molten glass from sheet glass or from glass container glass with a clipping blade a glass cylinders is formed using either the blow and blow process or the press and blow technique which is known as a gob. When the manufacture of the bottles is completed, they are distributed among different uses like storage of perfumes and drinks.
Bottles that were initially used to store drinks can be modified by cutting glass bottle to form a glass that can be used to store pens, drink or as a vase in several ways some of them being:
Heating them under a flame. The first step is to create a line where you would like the bottle to cut off at using glass bottle cutter tool such as a glass cutter or a glass grill. The second step should be to heat the bottle while rotating it regularly to ensure the heat from a small candle or a small butane torch is evenly distributed. After 5 minutes of heating, one can dip the end of the bottle they want to cut off in a sink or a pot full of water or ice. If the bottle does not break, repeat the process of heating and cooling until it breaks off as desired. Immediately the bottle breaks off rub its edges with a square sandpaper to smother the rough edges that may cut you and eventually with a finer grit sandpaper.
Use of a yarn to cut a bottle.
First, wrap the yarn or cotton string around the bottle 3 to 5 times at the area where you would like the bottle to break, tie the ends together and cut the excesses. Slide the yarn or cotton string off the bottle, put it on a dish, pour nail polish remover or straight-up acetone over the yarn until it is completely soaked and then the excesses into the bottle. Secondly, remove the yarn or cotton string from the bottle gently, place it on a dish and pour nail polish remover or straight-up acetone over the yarn until it is completely soaked and the excesses into the bottle. The third step should involve returning the yarn on the location where the cut off is supposed to happen and ensuring that the yarn loops are close together and tight enough to allow a level and clean cut off. Use a match or a lighter to light the yarn and rotate it gently to allow for consistent burning. To cut off the glass, dip it in a sink or pot full of cold water which should be after the yarn has burnt out until the glass is cut. Use a rough sandpaper to smoothen the edges and then a finer grit sandpaper.
