Video Demonstration: Cutting a Bottle With Thread and Acetone

Everyone loves those upcycled cut-glass bottle terrariums and we've discussed how to cut bottles at home on the blog before.  The easiest method we seemed to find involved using lighter-fluid-soaked thread to burn around the circumference of a bottle and then plunge the bottle in cold water to snap off the edge.  Whoa!  Still sounded scary to me.

Lo and behold this awesome video, in which the crafty crafters use acetone (nail polish remover) to achieve the same effect.  Maybe this is silly but- as I handle acetone frequently it sounds less scary to me to try it this way.  You can bet I am trying this at home once I collect some nice bottles.  Bottoms up!
