Polymer Clay Raku Buttons

Hated these buttons on the below linen jacket and wanted something different. What better than to make your own from polymer clay. I used scrap clay and rolled it through the pasta machine until I got a blend of colors I liked and added bits of Micaceous Iron Oxide acrylic paint, which gives it a bit of a metallic shimmer.
When I was satisfied with the texture and color, I cured it in a 260 degree oven.  They turned out great.
