So has anyone tried the string technique?

My mom & I tried today, and it didn't work.
We tried it on an Izze bottle with yarn and rubbing alcohol...
Help!

I should really get me some of that gel candle stuff, it looks like a really easy way to turn things into awesome candles.

i tried a while back with yarn and rubbing alcohol too and it didnt work :\ i dont know if maybe the yarn is too think? maybe my water wasnt cold enough? or i didnt let it burn long enough? im going to give it a try again this summer with some other types of string and well see what happens, after this school year i have PLENTY of bottles from my friends to use haha

I have wanted to make these ever since this post was just a baby, but I can't bring myself to put out the money for a glass cutter I will only use once and the string and fire method seems very tedious. If only there was another way to make these wonderful things.

i tried last night and it worked!!!! SO excited. I didnt have the string perfectly level around and had some cracking, but i was just testing.

I used yarn left over from the previous times that were still tied, and i lit them up once before so it looks like you can reuse a few times.

For those of you who it didnt work for, let it burn for at least 20-30 seconds (count SLOWLY) and then quickly dunk it in ice water (as cold as you can get it) I think my fallbacks were that i got antsy/nervous and didnt let it burn long enough.

Also, i tied yarn around the bottle, slipped it off and then soaked it in the rubbing alcohol for a bit and left it as wet as i could without it dripping all over the place and slipped it back on. i figure the more alcohol, the longer it can burn = the better.

ill post when i have some good results!!! and the edge of the bottle didnt seem that sharp either.. cup ready?
