Mosaic How To - my techniques for making glass on glass mosaics
I sometimes receive requests for mosaic techniques and instructions and since I no longer offer classes I decided to post "How To" info here on my blog every few days. This information is just about the techniques and materials that I have found to be useful. I am sure that others of you have had different experiences so use what is helpful and make it your own!
Lesson 1 - Tools
Glass cutter - a stained glass tool that I use to cut stained glass. These can be purchased at any stained glass store, online, Hobby Lobby, Mosaic Suppliers, etc.
Mosaic nippers - specifically designed to nip glass and tile - available in stores or online
Running Pliers - used to break the glass after you have scored it with the glass cutter
