You make it look sooooooo easy kaz!!
Can I be really cheeky and ask what you use to cut your murrini? I have some tile nippers but they just explode them everywhere.  For one decent murrini cut I have a whole load of frit on the counter that was probably about 10 other attempts!!

I have looked at those but they are so expensive I wanted to be sure that they work before shelling out for them  Undecided

Great video Kaz.  Think I will have to have a play with my silver glass murrini I bought ages ago from the states, but have been too chicken to play with  Wink

I have read very good things about that style on the forums myself I should imagine they are much gentler than the grindy ones

Lorna - when I first started making these, I had similar problems with some of the cutting even with the mosaic cutters. My first batch of Multicolour Mermaid did that splitting thing and I think it was down to either air (bubbles) being trapped between the layers or the underneath layer being too cold when the next layer was applied. Unlike normal encasing, it seems to help when the underneath layer is just a little bit warm but not melting.
