Part of the Twenty to Make series, this book looks at making polymer clay buttons in all shapes, sizes and colours. Great projects to make with the children, as long as you supervise baking. The only advice about baking is 'follow the instructions on the packet' since this is a generic book for all makes of polymer clay, so please note a separate oven should be used for baking polymer clay. The designs include hearts, fruit, animals as well as round buttons. Written instructions are clear, there are no how-to photos but a good photo of the finished project.

Finding 'just the right button' to compliment a handmade creation can be very difficult. Many commercially available buttons are simply too shiny and rarely available in the required colour. Polymer Clay Buttons, the new addition to the Search Press Twenty to Make range shows the reader how to make their own washable (up to 30 DegreesC) buttons. After a general introduction to the subject and a concise section covering tools and techniques this colourful booklet contains instructions for making a variety of buttons. Although many of the button projects fall into the novelty category there are plenty of other button types that would suit 'grown-up' projects. The Vintage, Psychedelic, Rainbow and Chunky buttons could be easily personalised and adapted once the basic techniques have been learnt. Two pages are devoted to each button and information is grouped under the headings Materials, Tools and Instructions. The numbered step-by-step instructions are clear and easily followed. To guide and inspire you, close-up and larger-than-life photos accompany each set of instructions; it doesn't take long before your head is buzzing with ideas.
