The first three items below are tools and will be a one-time expense. They can be purchased as individual tools at Hobby Lobby or Amazon (Michael’s no longer sells mosaic supplies). Amazon also sells them as a set, with one additional tool that can come in handy. The set comes in a carrying case. You can find the set by searching “Hilitchi 5pc” on Amazon. It should be the first search result and is around $56. If you want to buy them individually simply search for the tool name.
- GLASS CUTTER
- GLASS NIPPERS (They should have 2 wheels on them. Be careful not to confuse them with Tile Nippers which do not have wheels.)
- RUNNING PLIERS (don’t buy plastic ones)
The adhesives below can be purchased at most craft stores, Walmart or Amazon.
Weldbond (For indoor projects.)
CLEAR E6000 (For outdoor projects. Be sure to get clear, not white or black.)
- EYE PROTECTION
If you don’t already wear glasses, you’ll want to get safety glasses to protect your eyes. The best ones can be purchased at a big box store. Please don’t get them from a dollar store.
- OLD BATH TOWEL
- SCOTCH TAPE
- SHARPIES (BLACK AND SILVER)
There is quite a bit of glass available in the classroom. I suggest using it for your first project, then if you’d like to purchase specific glass for subsequent projects you can do so.
Other supplies such as a large glass cutter, cutting board, ruler, grout, graphite paper, tracing paper, etc. are available for use in the class.
