Making Glasses From Bottles.
The neck and the mouth of a bottle is usually slender than the other part of 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. After the bottles are manufactured they are distributed for use such a storage of perfumes, drinks and many other tasks.
Empty bottles can be modified by cutting them to make glass bottles for other uses such as for pen storage drinking glass and as a vase or to make a wine bottle light kit in a number of ways:
Using 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. Secondly, heat the glass along the line you created in a direct flame from a small candle or a small butane torch while constantly rotating it to ensure even distribution of heat. 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. The bottle cuts off with rough edges hence one should rub the edges with a square sand paper and then with a finer grit sandpaper as soon as they are finishing the cutting to avoid cutting themselves until it is ready for use.
Cutting a glass bottle using a yarn.
The first step of cutting a glass bottle using a yarn or a cotton string involves wrapping 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. The string or the cotton yarn is then removed from the bottle gently and placed on a dish where nail polish remover or straight-up acetone is added over the yarn until it soaks completely while the excesses are poured into the bottle. Place the yarn back to the area of the break off with the loops of the yarn close together and tight so that you get a level and clean break. Use a match or a lighter to light the yarn and rotate it gently to allow for consistent burning. After the yarn burns out, dip the cut off end in a sink or pot full of cold water to cut. Sand the edges with a rough sandpaper to smooth and then with a finer grit sandpaper.
