How to Make Glass Mosaics : How to Grind Glass for a Mosaic


One of things you need to do in this segment
is to learn how to use a grinder. You open this up, you have to use water in it and you
follow directions. Water is to come up this high and you have this little sponge in here
that you have wet to start with and it picks up water from there. So that when you have
a piece like the one I just cut and it has like a little edge on it or it might have
some other things on there, just grind it nicely along the edges. It’s not much, but
just a little edge on there to take off. Sometimes there’s more, and grind off this little nubby
on there. Make this as even as we can. Again be sure you have your glasses on when you’re
grinding, it’s very important. When you’re done the piece is wet so you want to have
something to dry with because if you try putting glue on a wet piece, even though they say
on the glue bottle it does not work. See this piece right here has just got a little bit
of stuff on it, left little residue of glass on there which would not be easy to glue with
that on and it just doesn’t look right. So this is where you might use a grinder.
