HOW TO MAKE LAMPS AND VASES FROM BOTTLES
 

 
HOW TO CUT GLASS WITHOUT A DIAMOND CUTTER:

 
Method 1:   Dip a piece of common string in alcohol or kerosene

and squeeze dry or as dry as it will get without dripping.  This

string should then be placed on the already marked glass and

tied tight.  Light the string and let it burn off.  Immediately,

while the glass is still hot, plunge it into cold water.  Be

sure the container of water is large enough to let the glass go

completely under as well as your arm up to the elbow, so as to

deaden the vibration when you strike the glass.  Strike the

glass with your other hand outside the line of cutting using a

stick of wood and hitting a sharp stroke.  This quick, sharp

stroke will break the glass where it has been weakened by the

burning string into a clean cut as if done by a regular glass

cutter.This method may be used to cut bottles in any shape and

to make vases and to perform many such cuttings on glass.

Method 2:  Here is a method that rarely fails to break the glass

clean in the place you want it broke.  First, scratch the glass

with the corner of a file or sharp graver.  Have a piece of wire

bent to the desired shape you want to cut the glass.  Heat the

wire red-hot and lay it upon the scratch.  Sink the glass into

cold water just deep enough to come on a level with the wire,

not quite covering it.  The glass will break clean.

HOW TO CUT GLASS WITH SCISSORS:  To do this you must place the

glass under water completely, then with a pair of ordinary

scissors, proceed to cut the glass as you would paper or cloth.

This method is, of course, not as smooth as job as the methods

described above.  The edges will not be as smooth, but for

getting a piece of glass down to size and where the edges are

not needed to be smooth, this method will be satisfactory.

HOW TO DRILL GLASS:  Get a piece of steel wire and file to shape

of a drill.  This must be tempered as follows:  Heat the end of

the drill on a flame until it is dull red, then place it in

metallic mercury.  This drill, tempered in this manner will bore

through glass as easily as through soft metal.  When using in

glass, always use oil of turpentine with a little camphor added

to lubricate the drill.  As you drill, be careful not to drill

clear through from one side as you will break the glass this

way.  Drill partly, or almost through, then start from the

opposite side and finish the hole.  Or, if you cannot do this,

as when you are drilling bottles, etc., fill this bottle with

water or place the glass in water.  CAUTION:  When you make the

drill, do not make the cutting edges so sharp or too acute.  The

drill will cut slowly but you will have better holes with less

breakage.

BONUS:  Rainbow colors for bottles, vases, etc: Use floating art

colors obtainable from most paint stores.  Take a pail and fill

it with water and drop a few drops of several different art

colors on top of water.  Now, take any article you wish colored

and dip down through the colors, slowly back and forth.  You now

have a rainbow colored article.  You can color bottles, vases,

and many articles this way.
