Beautiful Clay Buttons
 

Materials:

  • Polymer Clay- Here I used Studio By Sculpey: Buttermilk
  • Water Misting Bottle
  • Stamps - Memories Interactive Circles Large Stamp Set by Hampton Art
  • Acrylic Roller
  • Etch N Pearl
  • Super Slicer
  • Clay Dedicated work surface

Directions:

  1. Begin by softening and kneading your clay (also known as "conditioning"). Use clay dedicated Acrylic Roller and work surface to roll clay to 1/4" thick. I use a smooth floor tile from the home improvement store so I can roll, cut, shape and bake all on one area.

  7. Pierce two matching holes in the top of the button using an Etch N Pearl or other sharp tool. Move the tip around in a small circular motion to create two holes of same size, large enough for ribbon to pass through.
