I use Jar Doctor Stopples. I've noticed not all Bottles come out the same even if done the same way. I guess from what I hear some bottles have harder or softer glass then others that could affect the outcome? LEON.
Are you using the 3-finger for the bottom and the rubber bottle stopper at top or the 3-finger on top too? I know there’s different ways to do it

With all the pics ya'll have posted, you seem to be the guys to ask. I bought this master ink at the Houston bottle show with the thought that it would look awesome tumbled. Are there any special considerations for tumbling this since the lip has that spout feature?

Should tumble like any other bottle but my only concern is it looks like a 3 piece mold & the 3 piece mold lines look very faint so if it gets a heavy duty tumble it may end up looking like a turn mold instead of a 3 piece if you know what I mean? LEON.

3 Finger on Bottom & the pointed rubber bottle stopper at the Top. LEON.
That’s what I’m doing too. The jar doctor talked me into purchasing a couple of the smaller 3-finger for the top of the bottles so the copper can flow in and out. Hope I get them soon. I’ll let you guys know if it works any better

Sounds like I placed the same order as you! I’m interested to see how it turns out as well!

I don't know if I'd like that Idea, For me I put a specific amount of Copper, Cleaning Compound & Water in both the inside & outside of Bottle. If open & flowing in & out that could upset the balance of these specific amounts, meaning you got to much of something inside or outside or maybe not enough inside or outside. BUT, give it a try & tell me how it works out? LEON.
