Hammer and Hardie

Hammer and Hardie mosaic tools 
Dynasty smalti glass tile!



Attend a Smalti Mosaic Workshop at OzMosaics!

Each student has the opportunity to use a hammer and hardie, Leponitt wheeled mosaic cutters, scorer tool and side nippers to shape the smalti glass tile.
Find which tool suits you and your style of mosaics.
OzMosaics sells Italian made Hammer and Hardies.
Browse and select from our wonderful range of Dynasty smalti.
The modern portable Hardie is a great idea to move your hardie workspace around your studio, workbenches, outside or travelling to worksite or mosaic workshops.

You can select your mosaic hammer from medium to heavy weight.
You can shape your smalti with side nippers and Leponitt Wheeled mosaic cutters but the hammer and hardie is an added luxury and very useful for breaking down large pieces of glass, smalti, stone and marble etc.

If your hands ache or you can't achieve all the shapes and edging you wish with the wheeled nippers or side nippers, a hammer and hardie suite of tools is a great investment.  It's in your hands to bring traditional and contemporary tools and materials, techniques and inspiration to your mosaic art and craft.
