Polymer clay meets home decor!

A few weeks ago I decided to make some changes to our bedroom.  I started by painting the walls a soft warm grey. Then i purchased some new floral bedding, made some Roman blinds and then i needed some new throw cushions.  I love making pillows because the options are endless and this time i decided i needed to add some big buttons.  Nothing in my button stash was big enough so i decided to play around with the All-In-One CaBezel molds.
These are my first attempts!  After using the mold on white clay i decided that for both of the shapes i wouldn't keep any of the bezel (or frame) i just just cut around the outside of the cabochon.  After I baked them, i applied some Guilder's Paste to the surface (i used the one called "patina") When that had dried i sprayed them with a coat of Preserve Your Memories II (PYM II), waited a while and sewed them on!
