The 7-Inch Steel Tweezers are a larger option for those who find our regular thumb tweezers too small or whose hands can better hold something with extra length. The function is essentially the same: reducing tedium and frustration in positioning tiny tiles. These tweezers were not specifically manufactured for mosaic, but we would not recommend doing mosaic work without it or some sort of tweezers, especially if using tile or pieces cut 3/8 inch or smaller.
How to Reduce Frustration
Tweezers make it infinitely easier to dip your tile in adhesive or thinset without contaminating your fingertips. They also makes it much easier to position the tile on the surface without messing up what you have already done. Most of the frustration of making a mosaic comes from accidentally bumping tiles that you have already positioned, and tweezers keep this from happening quite so often. The trivial cost of a basic pair of tweezers is the best money you can spend as far as reducing frustration. You will also be able to attempt more detailed designs than you would consider if using only your fingertips.
