Same as with me, I will try this too so that I can able to create some images on the glass that looks pretty and very elegant as, there are some techniques that are suitable for etching images whatever we want to engrave.

These are really very beautiful and such globs looks really very pretty as you can make different patterns that looks fabulous and this design can be created in more better ways.

3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dremmel for cutting glass on: June 18, 2010 12:10:07 AM
You can cut glass with a diamond cut off wheel on a dremel. It's not your best option and you need to use water to keep the dust down. You do not want to breathe it. 

A better option, less toxic, would be a normal glass cutter. It has been a long time ago, high school, but I think we had an attachment that held the cutter steady, rotate the bottle against the cutter and tap bottle bottom to make the cut.

Good Luck!

You are right and this can be the better option to opt so that to avoid glass dust gets into your lungs. Normal glass cutter would be the better option and this will be more helpful but, water is required here too.

I think it is always better to have such challenges so that to get some better and unique designs to work that will look very perfect and glass is a material on which we can create anything like, mosaics as I like creating mosaic as it gives a modern look.

I imagine it will work.  The one thing that will need attention is that if you cut glass the edges will be very sharp.  You will want to heat it in a kiln to smooth the edges, or you will be getting cut.

Yes, you are right glass edges required to be smooth so that, there will not be a problem in getting your finger cut. Like, I have seen many designers who design different patterns of glass plates in round, square etc and it looks very unique too and what they do is, they cut the glass to give desired shape and then they make the edges cut in a shape that they want to have and after that they smooth out the edges to give that fine look which looks very attractive.

Wow, something really very creative as we dont need to go to some designer shops as, we can create this at home and use it for different purpose, like it can be use in bar shops and lounges for keeping glasses and also, it can be use for dinning tables that will look good.

This is actually very creative and looks very beautiful and it is a kind of creativity that adds style to your dine and makes it look very attractive, we can create such designs on different glasswares like glass dishes, plates and even bowls to give that look.
