Product Description

Smaller Size Makes Handling Easier!
Now even a beginner can create beautiful glass mosaics. Use for easy and fast cutting of sheet glass, smalti, Venetian glass tiles, ceramic tile and small porcelain tiles too! The cushioned grip and spring-return opening features make even big projects a breeze. A multi-purpose tool - bead makers use this handy tool to quickly nip their rods in to shorter pieces. Handles measure 4-1/4".

Delphi Tip: Use wheeled nippers to easily cut glass and tiles into various shapes. To create shard-like pieces, hold the wheeled nippers at an angle. Create squares and triangular pieces by holding the nippers straight up and down. If using sheet glass, start with a glass strip, then nip the strip. Play around with the way that you hold the nipper to see the different kinds of shapes you can create. Varying the shape of the glass pieces in your project will not only create interest, but will also allow you to show movement and direction.

Artist Keturah Esch used Wheeled Glass Nippers to cut the background for her rose table. Artist Kim Heenan used Wheeled Glass Nippers to nip the glass in her mosaic bird bath, a beautiful focal point in her garden.
