Silicon carbide grit is the same whether it comes in a bottle or glued to paper. It is a lot messier to work with in the loose form and here is the bad part: You really should have a separate piece of glass for each grit so they do not get cross contaminated. You will also be grinding glass at the same time you are grinding metal.

You could do it. It would be extra expense, trouble, and mess to do it this way. I would advise against it and say stick with abrasive sheets or stones.
