This week's Iron Craft Challenge was to create something from a bottle or other glass container. I went the mad scientist route and decided to try glass cutting. I didn't have a fancy glass cutter, so I used this tutorial to cut the bottle using nail-polish remover and fire.
It was really fun. And slightly scary. But mostly fun. The tops are a little jagged; I'm hoping that will improve with practice. I tried re-doing one of them and it didn't work, so it may be a one time thing on each bottle.
For now they are really simple candle holders on my mantle. What do you think?
