Every crafter worth her salt has an impressive button stash. Sometimes though, a project just calls for a certain kind of button. And sometimes, only a handmade button will do.
I took two aluminum discs and ran them through the embosser using an art deco die.
Although I liked the look of the buttons fresh from the embosser,
I wanted to added another dimension.
I utilized a dark purple gilder's paste to bring out the detail.
I applied the color with my finger and let it sit for a few days.
After the color was set, I buffed them and added them to a wonder hand-crocheted cowl. It was my first ever crochet project and it is special to me. The buttons make it even more important.
