    Great idea! I've never seen it done this way before. Do you get a cleaner break than using a glass cutter?

    yes just make sure that the string Is on the bottle straight and it should come out pretty straight.

    Another thing you can use other than lighter fluid is acetone nail polish remover :). I'm not sure if non-acetone remover would work but they are both highly flammable. When I made these I found that it was eaisier filling my sink with ice cold water and dipping the bottles in. Great ible!

    Hi, I just don't quite get how you did this. Could you provide written instructions, by chance? Thank you.

    the heat shock going from hot heated by the string on fire. to cold under the tap causes the glass to fracture cleanly along the heat line.
