we study glass cutting by a template, 123 MB
At this workshop, we begin to get acquainted with a particularly difficult method of cutting - curved cutting of glass along a closed contour, that is, cutting along a pattern, or template.
For high-quality curved cutting, four things are necessary: a good template, a good glass cutter, a steady hand and, most importantly, information on how to do it correctly. This is exactly the information we share with you in this lesson. We will be with you to cut your first oval glass!
Where do you need to take the cutting position?
Where to start and end the cut?
How should you move during the cutting process so that the hand with the glass cutter does not stop?
How to make a continuous enclosed cut of glass?
How do I start and end a cut at one point?
And, finally, how to remove the cut oval safe and sound?
See Workshop 9 for answers to these questions.

Together with you, we will cut a strip of corrugated glass 4 mm wide! Then you will learn the technique of curved cutting "by hand", without a template, since corrugated glasses often have to be cut "approximately" along the marker line, moreover, along a very winding line, since corrugated inserts (mainly in doors) have the most unexpected configuration. The difficulty lies in the fact that corrugated glass is very, very fragile, and breaks in the most unexpected places, usually where it is not needed! Before your eyes, our master will cut out a piece of glass with a curvature of less than 90 degrees and, of course, will teach you how to do it. We are carefully watching and learning aerobatics!
