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.
Shining Clay Tiles: Allow the baked clay tiles to cool. Dust off any debris formed due to the crusting. Pour some of the glossy tile sealer into a paint tray. Dip a brush with lamb wool bristles into the tile sealer solution. Coat the clay tile, using light strokes. Allow the first coating to dry. Wipe the tile with a dry cloth. Apply more coats of the sealer if you need more gloss.
