Measure and mark the line you want on the bottle before trying to cut.  The harder you press the slipperier it can be - so try being gentler and going around a few times.  And gardening gloves can help for the final snapping!
good luck

"I push down and rotate but I must somehow move it a cm or something because it's going into a spiral not a finished line!"

If yours is like mine it has nuts that you tighten to set the height that you want the line to be at. I would say that when you push down the line is changing because those nuts havent been secured well enough.  maybe set the height then use a pair of pliers to really lock it in before you scratch?

I don't think this would look at good with larger bottles though..would it? We have a lot of big bottles that are waiting to be finished!

well...ive done a few big bottles, and if you put one wick in the middle itll just burn a hole down the center, no good. but, if you put 3 wicks in spaced in a triangle, and keep them all lit, it will burn evenly, and give off a very strong glow.

Awesome idea.  Yours turned out wonderfully, and I love how they look when they're lit.

My god I looked at those pictures & thought, I'll throw out all my drinking glasses, & just replace them with cool trimmed bottles!

I'm pretty sure my husband wouldn't argue with a set of cobalt-blue trimmed bawlz glasses... Hard part would be rounding the raw edge down so it wasn't a hazard.

any ideas on how this would work with bottles with uneven surfaces?
My dad and his friends go through a bottle of Crown Royal like nobody's business.  (I dont get it.  It's so strong and...nasty...Huh)
