Button's Almost Complete

Button Making almost complete...

Here's all the finished ones, I love them all for different reasons, they're all so unique and they definitely fit with my sketchbook, so they'll fit nicely with my garments to when they're made, which I'll be getting into again this week again, I'll update you on my process :)

These I think would maybe look nice on a necklace so I think I'll use them for that instead, which will be good for my photoshoot, I plan on doing a few necklaces with the left over buttons to.

Coloured clay, not as dark as we'd expected but they still fit with my colour palette and I really like them

These remind me of 101 Dalmatians haha, still love them though.

Thinking of using these on the cape I'm going to make I think they'll fit best with the design, we'll see once its part made up.

They're pure white so the flash blew them out but they're quite nice.

BIG buttons! :D

More coloured clay...

These had bits on top but they cracked and fell off, but I like them plain anyway, love the way the colour has bled into them.

Coloured clay again.

Stretched coloured clay, it makes a skin effect.

Last of the coloured clay and finished buttons...

Buttons waiting to be fired, they'll come out darker and shiny I'll show you once they are done. The white ones also have crackle glaze on, which once in the cilm it cracks and goes deep into the cracks and shows them up more, you then go over them with acrylic ink to show it up even more, but as I said I'll show you once they're done.

This isn't mine, but when putting my buttons in the line to be glaze fired, I found this! Some TOTALLY AWESOME person made a panda, its so awesome, I so love pandas, perhaps maybe a tiny bit obsessed... but yeah, its EPIC and I love it, so thought I'd share it with you :)

That's all from me tonight, hopefully have something more to show you tomorrow.
