How to Make Buttons with Polymer Clay

Polymer clay is available is such luscious colors. I chose to blend three different colors to make my buttons.
1. Knead the clay to make it easier to work with.
2. Roll it out with a rolling pin.
3. Use a bottle cap or tube of lipstick to cut out shapes.
4. Press an actual button into the clay as a template to see where the holes should go.
5. Form the holes with a tooth pick.
6. Bake your buttons following the directions on the package.

That's it! Have fun.


  1. Are these machine washable? Even hand washable?

  2. They're definitely hand washable. I have read online that you can also put them in the machine, but I haven't tried that.

  3. Hi Vicki! Thanks for sending me this project! I forwarded it on to our Polymer Clay editor...hopefully she chooses it! If not, I'll post about it, but I thought it was better for her page. Thanks! Kristen- Craft Gossip
