I love it! If you have access, you could print your design, tape it to the glass and back-light it so you could see where to carve.

Dosing bottles / containers?

If you have a university nearby with a decent medical, veterinary, or chemistry program, see if they have public surplus sales. I get all my lab glassware for pennies from UC Davis.
