Before we begin making a stained glass project I want you to take the time to practice using a glass cutting tool on inexpensive clear glass. This will help you get the feel for your cutter, and get a decent feel for how to score a piece. When scoring, listen to the cut. You can hear whether or not you are making a clean cut. Once you are good at scoring glass you will be ready to move on to the more expensive stained glass.
