silkscreened polymer clay buttons

These silkscreened polymer clay buttons are made with screens of my original drawings processed in a thermofax imaging machine.The images are screened with acrylic paints onto sheets of polymer clay. The paint is allowed to surface dry, then the sheets are shaped using button frames. The buttons are then cured at 285 dregreesF.All the designs come from my travel journals. i feel that these buttons add a simple yet elegant touch to handknit, sewn or dollar store finds.
