Introduction: Bottle Display

Picture of Bottle Display

Recycling one wine bottle is one less trash out there, I decide to make something out of it.
For this project I recommend an adult supervision if the person doing this is under legal age and work in an open space when the fire part is involved.

Step 1: Glass Bottle

Picture of Glass Bottle

I used an empty wine glass but any size glass bottle or container will be good, depending of what you want to display.

Step 2: Materials

Picture of Materials

Scissors,
sandpaper,
stencils and tape (not showing)
engraver.

Step 3: Materials

Picture of Materials

rubbing alcohol or acetone, lighter, a piece of rope of about 40 inches or enough length for six or seven rounds around the bottle because the thickness of the glass.





Step 4: Ice

Picture of Ice

Iced water is very important, room temperature water would not work (again because the thickness of the glass)

Step 5: Wrap

Picture of Wrap

around the piece of rope around the bottle (just where you want to make the cut) tie a knot, cut the excess and remove it from the glass.

Step 6: Put

Picture of Put

the rope in a small container (I used a jar lid), pour the rubbing alcohol or acetone and let it soak.

Step 7: When

Picture of When

the rope is well wet, put it back on the bottle. Avoid any spills and dry your hands.

Step 8: Hold

Picture of Hold

the bottle horizontally above the iced water, fire up the rope, the fire will heat up the glass just around were you want it, and when the fire is about to expire drop the bottle on the iced water. Soon you will hear a crack sound.

Step 9: Sharp

The border will be very sharp. Wet a piece of sand paper and sand away the border carefully until is smooth.

Step 10: Design

I was just wondering where did u get the engraver at? does it use batteries? and  also how much did it cost.

That looks really nice, I've never seen glass cut like that before. I have a few wine bottles at home that I can try it out on.
