Mixed Media with Buttons

I have always had an obsession with buttons.  They are like mini pieces of art all on their own.  So this month I decided to try and make my own.  I used both Creative Paperclay and Delight Air Dry Modeling Compound.  After I painted my buttons I also gave them a top coat with Terri Sproul Mixers and 3D Crystal Lacquer.


I found that with both products the buttons came out great.  The only difference was that the ones that I did with the Delight Air Dry Modeling Compound had more of a puffy appearance than the one's I did with the Creative Paperclay.

There are so many differnt ways to use buttons in your work.  I am showing you just one.  Also, these buttons are not for clothes because they are not washable.

Here is the final piece:
