The glass of the bottle
Don’t know if you’ve noticed that the glass bottles in which you buy alcohol or soda are extremely beautiful? We’re not talking about those who pasted colorful pictures, and those on which is engraved a pattern. Maybe you, like us, thought about how to keep this beautiful vessel, preferably without resorting to the collection of empty bottles?
We found a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing and practical option is to make this bottle glass. It is not so difficult, though not completely safe. Well, if you do it right, your eyes and hands will remain safe and sound. You can even make your collection of glasses that will be not a pity to break up the party. So, let’s start.
1. You need
- Any glass bottle;
- Acetone (you can take the liquid Polish remover, sometimes this tool contains acetone);
- A small container for the acetone;
- Yarn (go to a sewing store or to grandma’s);
- A towel or a rag;
2. Choose a bottle
If you just want to try to make a glass, you don’t have to go for an expensive bottle of wine. Use any glass bottle.
3. Enjoy the taste
For starters, get rid of the content. Use the opportunity to enjoy a drink.
4. Make an ice bath
Not for himself but for the future of glass. Fill a sink with cold water and throw a few handfuls of ice.
Pour acetone into a bowl. It is no secret that this is pure chemistry, so work carefully with liquid. If it gets on the skin, nothing terrible will happen, but if in the eyes, then you would not be very nice.
6. Cut yarn
You need enough yarn, you should wrap it on the bottle 4-6 times. Give the bottle horizontally and start to wrap it in yarn. Cut off the excess, but leave the end. Now you can remove the yarn. You measured the right amount of yarn.
7. Soak the yarn
Put the string in a container of acetone. Do not skimp on the liquid — yarn should have a good soak.
Get yarn from acetone and again wrap it on the bottle. Watch it now! Hold the bottle horizontally over the sink with ice water. Now light the yarn. Can rotate the bottle until the thread is no longer illuminated. It will take about 30 seconds.
When the fire stops, immediately put the bottle in the water. Bottle may split the first time, but don’t stop, perhaps procedure should be repeated 1-2 times, depending on the thickness of the glass. In any case, sooner or later you’ll get your Cup.
9. Clean and ready
For reliability of the treated edge of the sandpaper. Now feel free to pour in the vessel of your favorite beverage and enjoy. The whim of the Jew that lives inside of you, are happy — you got a free glass.
