Product Description

Ingenious running pliers have a patented pressure system that allows them to be positioned from any angle - great for running difficult scores, especially inside curves. Just center the score line in the "window" and apply even pressure to produce accurate and clean breaks. Replacement jaws available (#40485). Made with a non-metal composite.

Delphi Tip: After scoring your circle on the Scoring and Breaking Mat, use Ringstar Pliers to apply even pressure on the score at 3" intervals around the circle, running the score.

Pros : these make an inside curve so easy. you do have to take your time and listen to the glass tell you what it is doing. you use very gentle and very small spacing.squeeze it like and egg but don't break it. I recommend them to all of my classes
Cons : slow going

  •   not happy at all
By on
Pros : none
Cons : The jaws of the pliers I received do not line up evenly. If I put the score line evenly in the window, the breaker point on the other jaw is not lined up and instead of a clean break I get crushed glass. Very frustrating!
Other Thoughts : Too bad I didn't try them out right away and am past the 30 day refund period. Now I have to buy another pair of pliers.

  •   An absolute must for inside curves
By on
Pros : Breaking out inside curves just got easier! These Ringstar pliers are an absolute essential to add to your toolbox. You do need to take your time and listen to the score as you're running it, but with this tool I'm able to break out curves that didn't stand a chance before. I recommend this tool to everyone I know.
Cons : None

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
