I knitted new cardigan for myself, but didn`t find matching buttons. So I made them from polymer clay, using piece of wallpaper to add texture to black Fimo. I had turquoise Inca Gold Paste, but it wasn`t  the “right” color for the buttons(yarn color was petrol or teal), but I also had Mica Powder Paints (Zesty Lime). Mixing them together I got the perfect result. After applying the paste to textured clay I cutted buttons out using the smallest Fat Daddio round cutter, cured them on the small light bulb and filled with clay. Buttons have metal chanks made of 0.8 mm silved plated wire.I just pressed them to the clay and textured the back of button with wallpaper around my finger.
