Save my DH's sanity! - Any tips on cutting glass mosaic tiles?

He is tiling our tiny toilet with glass mosaics and just spent entire day trying to work out how to cut the teeny-tiny buggers. Can anyone help? We bought a supposed 'glass mosaic tile cutter' hand tool which has so far just shattered a few or cut them wonkily. I know it's probably a long shot but can ANYONE help. Massive thanks in advance!!

Bump. Anyone?!

I think we've made a mistake choosing glass mosaics!!

hmm, a match either end, scrape, scrape scrape and then push downat least that is what my dh did with normal tiles. (hmm)

I thought you kind of "nibbled" out the bit you don't want. Not with your teeth though, obviously.

We always used an electric tile cutter and sadly we too bought glass tiles -not mosaics though as we were warned they were a nightmare.

The best cutter we used was a plasplugs one for £30 from B&Q. They do sell a glass tile cutting disc but we found the disc that came with the plasplugs was fine.

Glass tiles look great but are an absolute nightmare to cut -even the large ones, I thought DH was going to have a breakdown over them

Good luck
