Different snap cutters have different means of snapping tile. Some have a heel at the rear of the lever that has the cutting wheel at its toe; with others, the reverse is true. Whatever the design of your cutter, use the surface to apply pressure to the score line. In combination with a bead built into the base of the cutter, the pressure will cause the tile to snap in half. A little patience, some practice, a score and a snap, and you're a tile cutter.
Rolling and Cutting Kneaded Clay: To make the basic frame of the ceramic tile, you need to create equal_sized pieces from the kneaded clay. Roll_out small pieces of clay, using the pin. Ensure that the rolled_out clay is at least 0ሑ_inches thick. Using a knife, cut the rolled_out clay in the required shape. The square shape is the easiest to carve and the most common shape for ceramic tiles. If you aren't sure about the uniformity of the squared clay pieces, use a ruler to measure each end.
