Lovely buttons


I met a lovely lady at the recent Fashion Show at IRT(Indiana Repertory Theatre) who make a beautiful purse. She asked me if I could make a button for her purses and I did just that. These buttons are made to match perfectly with the color of the fabric and compliment the shape of the purses. It was fun and challenging and we both felt happy with the outcome.
I think making buttons could be my next career.

I am using Polymer clay, of which I can make anything out of it. I can tell you how to make those buttons.
P.S.

If you ment the white and blue one, I put a very thinsheet of white on top of Blue sheet, then press the stamp on it, press down hard. After thatI use the thin blade to slide off the top. What is left was the imprint of the stamp. The rubber dtamp sheet I bought from Barbara Mc Guire. Thanks for your compliment.

I found your blog via the Polymer Clay Daily site. I love your work. I'm a beginner with polymer clay. How are they to to be attached as a button? Are they durable?

Lovely work, thank you for sharing!

I attached a small metal button chank to the back. You can get the plastic one too or make holes. These buttons can be wash and dry, but not dry clean.
