Your Main Kit (Stained Glass Tools) you get are:

1. Basic Key Cutter (Fletcher) - dip this in oil (any light weight oil) to keep it lubricated as you score the glass. (to “score” is scratching the surface). Score (scratch) the glass with this cutter then use the Ball End to tap the underside of glass where you’ve scored!

2. Breaker - combo breaker / grozier plier - This helps with those curves & small pieces of glass you are trying to break just right. Hold it with the curved Side Down (make it smile at you & you know you have it in the correct position). Nose the breaker up to the score (scratch) line snapping glass downward. Use practice glass until you’ve mastered this technique.
