It’s going to be polymer clay paradise at the Knit & Crochet Show in Greensboro, NC, in September!
I’m teaching two six-hour classes of polymer clay button-making techniques:
In Polymer Clay Button Boutique 1, we’ll make colorful and easy swirl buttons, lapis-lazuli-like buttons. We’ll go into groups of two or three to work on an easy millefiori technique, resulting in buttons like the ones pictured above. (You’ll have a choice of several different shapes for your buttons.)
After lunch we will make Crazy Polymer Patchwork Buttons like the ones in the photo above-right. We will end by making flower appliqué buttons.
Ella was about five years old when I made the buttons you see here. She used up my scraps to make this Polymer Clay Guy. Kids + Polymer Play = Creativity Squared!
