In the works…learning to use an upholstery button maker

Oh I am so excited about this idea/technique/excuse to buy tools!

Huddled over my computer last weekend, I watched some vids on YouTube on how to make upholstery buttons. I happened to have picked up an old button maker at an estate sale some time ago and had  never really figured out how to use it. It’s a bit of a finicky bugger, but eventually I scrapped out enough buttons to start on a new series. I’ll try to take some photos of the actual button maker and post them up here…

So far I’m not sure what’s going to happen to this skull but it’s going to be mounted on a puffed and pillowed board, set into an old casserole dish. Yumm-E.

And now a little farther along (getting hard to photograph the metallic gold!).
