I had a request earlier in the week to try a new button design. I made a batch last night using white clay and then two batches mixing white with brown for a variation of colouring. They will end up being about 10mm. Tiny!
My imitation pebbles have some real promise:
I’m also in the process of creating very small buttons for mittens and children’s items. These should reduce to 12mm after bisque and glaze firings:
The glaze settles into the texture and makes these buttons so appealing. They are time consuming but delightful.
Are there buttons you need for a special project? Contact me through my Etsy Shop to inspire me to create!
