Some other incidentals that you probably have laying around the house or don’t need to get from commercial glass suppliers:
Scissors – Any sharp ones of the pointed variety and any length will work. Used for cutting pattern pieces and to cut off foil.
Horseshoe Nails – We have them in-stock, and for sale at $1.00 for 10, as you don’t need a box of 100, which is how they come commercially.
0.5mm retractable pencil – be sure it has several lengths of lead in it.
Small Square or 60/30 or 45/45 triangle – You may have a 9” by 12” square or some triangles around the house. Just include one of any of these 3. Used for Squaring Up a design taken from the internet.
Paint Marker – White paint pen with very fine tip. 0.7mm point. These come in two paint widths, so be sure and get finer one. The body of the pen is about 7/16” in diameter. Some dark glass is hard to see through, so the untra-fine Sharpie is not visible, though it will be used 90% of the time.
