Here are my two finished buttons. I did a post yesterday explaining how I used EasyMold Silicone Putty to make molds of antique buttons. I also added Castin' Craft opaque pigment colour to Envirotex Lite to make the pink and black duplicates.
After removing the new duplicate buttons I had a little filing to do. I smoothed some edges and defined some details.
Then I pulled out my metallic rub-ons. I have had these for years. They are wax based and work beautifully on most surfaces. (I like to highlight the raised edges of any clay work I create with these rub-ons.)
The best tool you can use is your finger to apply the colour. I also used a brush to get into some of the lower areas. The mold captures every single detail so my duplicates are excellent.
Above are the originals and below my own new versions.
I used some Resin spray to fix all the colours permanently.
Isn't this detail wonderful?
I hope this encourages you to make a few special molds of your own.
Now my art cards have very special one of a kind embellishments.
