Using Ephrem’s Olde Time Bottle Cutter kit Tyler was able to score the cleaned wine bottle. The bottle then goes into an ice water bath to separate the two pieces. After some sanding and smoothing the glass is ready to etch. Tyler has access to a sandblaster but glass etching kits can be found in craft stores like Michaels.
Tyler makes some great suggestions and additions to this process so be sure to read his step-by-step process. Additionally he suggests not using these glasses for drinking glasses as they still have quite an edge to them. If you feel that this DIY project may be over your head (or just don’t have the time) you can purchase one from his Etsy shop (priced between $5.00 and $12.00).
