I have been dying to make a mosaic with this old mirror glass I have, but I don't know how to cut it into pieces.  I bought  a glass cutter (the old fashioned kind that you roll accross to "score" it) but it's really hard to get small pieces.  Does anyone know how to "clip" off pieces lik eyou would with ceramic tile?
Thanks!

Have you tried going to Lowe's or someplace and asking them? If you're lucky and have good workers, they will be able to help you!  Grin HTH

They sell glass cutting pliers that you can line up along the score line to break a small piece. You can probably get one at the hardware store.

I have also used tile nippers to make small glass mosaic pieces. The tile nippers aren't nearly a clean as using actual glass nippers but they do the job in a pinch.
