I was up into the wee hours last night, working at my first ever attempt to make something vaguely useful out of poly clay. Now I have buttons!!!
As I suggested, they are rough. They were slapped together at the end of an already long crafting session, using the leftover clay. I have heard it is important when mixing colours for a project, to be careful to mix enough. Sounds fair, I’d hate to try to re-create an exact shade. I overshot the mark somewhat though. I had enough over from my project (which will have to remain a mystery for now, as it is for a swap I have not yet posted out), to make a batch of buttons and some hefty beads too. So anyway, these babies were not given a lot of time or care. I squished ’em, poked holes in ’em and that is it. They still have fingerprints all over and most are not all that flat. In short, they suck. But I love them so much, I just don’t quite know why. I can picture them on a white lace cardigan someday.
