To some people it may seem that a glass cutter is a complex mechanism, but it is much easier actually. By following the basic rules, you can easily cope with this task.
Start by removing the label. To do this, use warm water, soap and a hard sponge. Wipe the bottle well. Prepare a large pot of boiling water. It will be need later.
Once the bottle is cleaned, determine the height of your vase and set the glass cutter. After that, crank the bottle under the blade in the designated place on the entire range.
Then put on thick gloves and dip the bottle in a pot of boiling water on the cut line. Rotate the bottle several times and leave under water for 30 seconds. Turn on the cold water to the sink.
Next, remove the bottle from the hot water and locate it under a trickle of cold water in the place of the cut. The bottle should break. If it does not, repeat steps 3 and 4 until the bottle would be broken.
Once the bottle is broken, use sandpaper to smooth the edges of the cut. First, take a sandpaper coated with a thick covering, it will remove all the excess, and then use the thin paper to finally smooth the edges.
So, you will have a glass vase. You can make as many as you want. And it is possible to make glasses or candlesticks of different colors and sizes from bottles.
