STEP TWO

EXPERIMENTAL MIXING

Gently squeeze each of the polymer clay balls between your fingers to flatten slightly into a button shape.

Have a look in the mirror to check the button size you have made looks good.

Mark small holes in the surface of each button using the pointy end of the skewer.
