Heart with Polymer Clay
Now it’s time to decorate . Create a plastic material from the buttons. They are done in two stages, first you need to make a hollow. For small and large buttons.
Then cut off the round buttons with round shapes.
With the help of a sharp wooden stick create holes in the big four, in the small two.
At the top of the button we make small cavities, insert thin threads of clay into the holes. We drip the glue on the heart and glue both parts together.
Now create the back patch. We make it much less than the heart, we squeeze out some drawing on it.
