Tools for smalti cutting smalti
Using special tools to cut smalti you will be able to make the most beautiful mosaics. Many people keep on trying to use nippers for smalti. But often the nippers appear not to be suitable to make nice and smooth cuts. The smalti will show the cuts made by the nippers. Of course it needs practice to cut smalti with the hammer ( martellina ) and hardie ( tagliolo ). But once you have learned this technique, you will make better work. And you will work much easier and faster. It may sound weird, but with a martellina you are able to make corrections on your smalti much easier than with the nippers. Smalti is not a cheap material and therefor it is a good investment to learn the right cutting technique in order to make the most beautiful mosaics in a effective and economical manner.
