Button Back Revealed

Here is the answer to what kind of back I use. For the buttons in the 52/7 project all have a polymer clay loops on the back. I bake the front and the back of the buttons separtly and bake the two parts with a third piece of polymer clay.

For small buttons metal backs are available from House of Orange .

There on page F 410 just above the bottom right corner. It is easy to miss them.

Joan, thanks for posting the back of your buttons. That's an innovative way to add a button shank.

Oh yes, thank you so much for posting that! I thought they had metal shanks but this seems to be a more interesting way!
