Buttons : Polymer Clay

I once tried to make my own buttons of polymer clay, and found out that that was far from easy. My hands were either too cold or too warm, I mixed the colours often too long so that the pattern was gone, I had always my fingerprints visible on the clay at the end, and sometimes they burnt in the oven.... You can read about it and see those meager productions in an earlier blog.
Looking at the fantastic polymer clay button creations at Etsy, showed me that I have still a long way to go ...... Here are some stunning buttons for you to look through:
