The decorative dot conceals the holes of the button. But it also caused some technical difficulties.
I ended up making three toggles because the first hole was too small to account for the bump on the button. So I made a new thinner button without the dot, and added a stripe of the patterned clay to the brown frame to link the two pieces.
Then the second toggle frame was too big and it got scorched in the oven so it’s now covered with mosaic made from scraps. Although the colours seem to be departing from orange, I think this one is my favourite. It just goes to show that mistakes are often opportunities with polymer clay.
Which one is your favourite?
