B&V Grid Tool

$15.90 AUD

We designed our Grid Tool to help aid makers in marking holes evenly on earrings but it's also handiest tool you never knew you were missing!

The Mini size has a 5 x 10cm grid & the Standard size has a 10 x 13cm grid.


  • Line your unbaked piece/s on the grid & then mark with a needle tool where you want to drill them after baking (you can use a marker on baked pieces).
  • The Mini Size is perfect for making a pair of earrings on that needs to be moved around - as well as it's the perfect size to pop under most UV lamps!
  • The Standard Size was designed to perfectly fit our Transfer Papers: cut your clay down to size, adhere to the Grid Tool and smooth your Transfer Paper onto it. Gentely rub on with your roller before flipping the whole tool over & rubbing into your tile for best adhesion. Then transport to your tap to wash away: Perfect for capturing that reel moment!


  • The Grid Tool is engraved on the underside of the tool, meaning the pattern will not transfer to your clay/pieces. 
  • Clean with a damp cloth or soap water. Acrylic doesn't like alcohol based cleaners so avoid using Isocol where possible. Microfibre is great to clean acrylic with.
  • We do not recommend using this as a cutting or drilling surface. Acrylic can be easily cut into & you will mark it if you cut on it.

Colour Notes:

  • The Peach is the most effective colour when engraved, the lines go bright pink
  • The Aqua has a yellow sheen to the body of the acrylic with a hot Aqua edge.
