Cut on the smoother side and use running pliers if you can, I find if I keep an even pressure when scoring, and break it right away it works better for me. Whatcha makin? What color is your glass, is it opalescent or clear?

When cutting Uroboros, or any ripple, it seems to help when you don't press down too hard with the cutter. I also do my glass chant, Break on the score, break on the score!!!!!!

Actually, I score HARD on un undeside of the ripple glass. It takes a lot of force to break. Because the glass is expensive and I don't want to waste, I end up TAPPING all the scores I make on this type of glass. It's noisy but a lot more reliable. Remember you are trying to break the glass, not your heart!
