Creative Impressions In Clay buttons are made from low fire
white earthenware clay.
All buttons are fired twice.
First firing is the bisque firing, second firing is the glaze firing.
Buttons are painted with colorful underglazes or
Mason stains, along with a clear gloss or satin matte glaze.
They are all individually made by one person.
Ceramic buttons may be washed while attached to your garment,
as long as precautions are taken to avoid breakage and chipping.
In a perfect world they would be removed and sewn back on after cleaning.
But we don't live in a perfect world.
Wrap aluminum foil, bubble wrap, or foam wrap around
each button, wash garment inside out.
Hand washing is ideal.
Hang drying is strongly suggested.
Putting ceramic buttons in the dryer is akin to taking a ceramic vase and
hitting it repeatedly on a metal surface.
As with most ceramic items the glaze will naturally crackle.
This is due to the porous nature of clay.
Clay expands and contracts with the weather and humidity.
You may choose different colors from the
color chart. Buttons are usually made to order.
The color combinations and possiblities are as broad as your imagination.
Each button is made individually by hand.
This makes every button unique and special each time you order.
