Mosaic Techniques continued

Glass cutting surface - this is a rigid grid that supports your stianed glass while you are scoring and breaking it.  The use of this allows the small chips of glass to fall into the grid and not sit on your surface to possibly cut you.  It can then be vacuumed or rinsed out.

Miscellaneous tools such as straight edges (razor blades, exacto tools with different blades, etc.), popsicle sticks, toothpicks.  These are all used to remove excess glue, straighten pieces, remove pieces that you have added but don't like.  They are also helpful for cleanup during the grouting proces
Tomorrow I will add glues and some of the supplies that I use.
