Today we bring you an article in which we will show you how to make glasses using the typical glass bottles that usually contain wine or coke..
The main objective for making our glasses is to break the bottle into two pieces. To do this we will need the following utensils:
- Glass bottle.
- Thick cotton thread.
- Alcohol 96.
- Bucket of cold water.
As you can see, the requirements are quite simple and can be found in any home.
That said, we can start the process. The procedure is based on the physical reaction that occurs in the glass due to a sudden temperature change..
The first step will be to dip a piece of cotton thread in alcohol (it should be long enough to tie around the bottle).
Afterwards, wrap the thread around the bottle to the height at which we want to make the cut.
After this, carefully ignite the cord soaked in alcohol and wait for it to extinguish..
As soon as we see it starts to fade, dip the bottle in the bucket of water and wait to hear the click. characteristic that appears when a crystal breaks. If we see that the crystal resists breaking, we can repeat the process as many times as we want but always putting the thread in the same place.
When we manage to break the bottle, precede touching it up by sanding out imperfections that have appeared by means of coarse sandpaper.
Below is a video with the complete process. If you have any doubts, comment them in the forum and they will be quickly answered.
