You need someone to push moderately hard on the glass to keep it stable and from popping out as you pull the strings. They also need to apply pressure to your command at the spot you are working on. I doubt it can be done alone, certainly not the first one. I have probably done 6 or 8 of these , and I don't think I have the skill do do one alone (it would take the rubber cups pulling from inside and you would need to pull the string with your teeth )

It is good that your old one is still usable, if you screw up. The first one seems intimidating, but the learning curve is steep. Even within the first attempt, it gets easier. Just do it!
