Product Description

A Great Time Saver for Nipping Glass
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. Nippers measure 8" long.

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.

  •   Easier than I thought
By on
Pros : They work a lot easier than I thought they would. I am able to control the shape of my piece just by changing the direction of the wheel. I can do somewhat of a curve by making a few indentations in my curve. Not always accurate but works for mosaic.
Cons : Takes a bit of a grip strength for old ladies but its great exercise for the hand. At times the size of the wheel gets in the way of seeing what you are doing.
Other Thoughts : Wish there was a smaller size wheel.

  •   Wheeled Glass Nippers
By on
Pros : I use these for cutting stringers and glass rod. Works well. Wear glasses or goggles in case a few shards go flying. Wheels are sharp. Tool is easy to use
Cons : So far no cons.
Other Thoughts : Others warn re cutting thin glass. I have no opinion on this as I have not used this tool for that function. I am not into mosaics, so no thoughts for that issue either.

Ah, the perfect scoreevery glass cutters dream. But is there really such a thing? Lets put it this way If you run your glass cutter around your pattern, apply pressure to the glass surface and the glass breaks predictablywhats so imperfect about that? Nothing really, but if your su cessful breaks are the product of luck rather than skill, well hope for the best, but expect otherwise. To guarantee a good glass score every time takes nothing more than observing a few non-negotiable facts about how your glass cutter interacts with you and your glass. Step One Get Comfortable You must be comfortable with your glass cutter. If you havent already, find a glass cutter you like, and most importantly, likes you back. That means finding a glass cutter that isnt uncomfortable to hold. You should be able to cut glass without getting fatigued or feeling any pain. Blisters

How did you get started in glass? I have always admired stained glass but never thought I would have the patience for it. It seemed like the process was daunting. I am the webmistress for my Fremont Harley Owners Group Chapter and a lady in the Chapter created a glass panel to honor another members wife who had passed. I mentioned to her that Id always thought about doing stained glass but figured it was too hard. She offered to come teach me and change my mind. Last April, she did just that. It is labor intensive - but as a website developer Ive developed the patience for intricate things. Why glass? Im a very visual person, have always been artistic, and love vivid colors. Ever since I was little, I remember my mom washing out empty noxema bottles (cobalt blue) so I could hold them up to the light.
