I need your help!


I have been playing around with making these necklace charms out of sculpey clay the past few days. I finally got the colors I wanted from mixing and then I used old buttons that were my grandmothers to make the imprints. Now I can't decide whether I should highlight them with paint or leave them plain. I had used brown because the pink/brown and blue/brown combo seems to be popular but now I kind of think I should just varnish them and leave them alone. What do you think? Oh, I tried painting a few also. It is ballet recital time around here so I thought I'd try a couple of ballerinas, I really need one of those brushes with one hair in them. And I am still liking my daisies. So let me know, with paint or without?

I think they look great just plain.

I think they are all gorgeous Michelle (especially love the ballerinas!) and I to prefer without paint, makes them look like authentic vintage buttons (not to mention less work for you!). I had to double-take to see if they were the originals or the ones you made yourself, great job!!

Those are so cute! I like them plain, but a little brown would be cute too.

I vote for plain, they look more vintagey that way, but are cool either way.

thanks for coming by, I entered you in the drawing.
