playing with a violin bow!

ive just bought a violin bow (2nd hand for£3;50) and in a jimmy page/sigur ros style i have been experimenting with playing my guitar with it. ill cut to the chase, it sounds awful. seriously, ive heared nicer sounds from two cats fighting outside my bedroom windows at 3am.
i was wondering if anone has any tips on how to make it sound good? ive heard some really awsome ambient sounds made on guitars with a bow, but how do i do it ?
any help would be welcome
