Step-by-Step: Breaking Out Circles
1. Using a circle cutter, make one continuous score. Mark score line with marking pen.
2. Flip glass over and place on breaking mat. Center thumb over mark and apply even, gentle pressure until the score begins to run. Repeat, repositioning your thumb where the run stopped, until it completes the circle. Note: Your will only be able to see the marks on cathedral and wispy glass.
3. Flip glass over. Create four "watch band" cuts. Score from circle out to the edge of the glass. Use running pliers to release the circle.

  •   Better breaks
By on
Pros : This is a great little addition to my shop. Glass does break better with this cushion underneath.
Cons : I wish it was bigger.
Other Thoughts : It cleans up nice and only has a few nicks in it after several years use.

  •   Couldn't live without it!
By on
Pros : I love my mat. It makes cutting much easier and more efficient for me, especially with small pieces for jewelry. It holds the glass securely, a real plus when designing a cabochon.
Cons : They smell a little at first, and it takes awhile for the odor to go away.
Other Thoughts : You won't totally replace your grid cutting system (especially for large pieces), but once you start using this, you will can't imagine how you cut before.
