Some of Cait's buttons. You can see the fabulous impression from her mold on the ones in the foreground. And look how thin the little squares are and how nicely they bend.
I am finding too that it bends and molds well. We have just gotten to the first step in learning about this highly regarded porcelain. I am going to try a few more ways of working with it before I make a final judgement.
These are leaves, hearts, birds and butterflies If you get in close on the photo you can see how the clay crumbles around the cuts. It seems sticky. When these dry I will see how they sponge up. And then bisque firing and the exciting part THE GLAZE.
And to get back to our button and glaze adventure, I just have to share another photo of another one of Cait's scarves with buttons. These beauties are glazed in Coyote Pam's Blue. What a lovely old fashioned blue that is. Kind of a pewter blue, I guess. It sure looks great on this scarf. You can see a pic of it in Cait's Etsy shop here.
