Mosaic nippers are be used to cut ceramic and porcelain tiles and should be used with caution. A good idea is to wear protective gloves when cutting larger mosaic tiles. One should also be careful of small pieces of the mosaic tile which may splinter while cutting. Safety goggles can prevent any unnecessary injuries while using tile nippers.
A mosaic cutter can also be used to cut larger mosaic tiles to size for your carts and craft project. The cutter can also be used to gently score the mosaic tile before cutting to ensure a smooth edge on your mosaic tiles.
