Buttons and Lava Rocks

After our button making-workshop, I bought some Amazing Mold Putty from Michael's to make my own button molds, and of course I had to make some buttons right away. These three buttons had a center of green clay, had thin slices of a shell cane place around each one, and then were pressed into the mold. Each button was buffed with a dremel tool after baking.

These lava rocks were made from plain ole black clay, formed roughly, and then pressed into kosher salt. I made a few more indentations with a needle tool, and then baked. After baking, I immediately dunked them in water so the salt would dissolve and buffed them as well, for a subtle sheen.
