Fused Glass – Buttons

I love making functional glass pieces. I made these buttons a while back, using Creative Paradise Inc (CPI) Molds. They are casted glass, meaning I put glass in the molds, and they come out perfectly. The back of the buttons are flat and the front are rounded.

Recently I made a few more, this time using reactive glass. When you add copper glass (Blues) and sulfur glass (vanilla). Aren’t the reactions beautifully? The only one that isn’t a reaction is the green & red. the one on the end is leftovers from the other 3 reactive glasses. I think it’s pretty cool

I also made some round ones. I think they are so cool. I think I like opaque better than the transparent but I think they are all fabulous. Which is your favorite?

I also made tiny buttons, some with metal findings on the back and clear findings on the transparent pieces. What a pretty way to dress up a hat or blouse!

Let me know which Button is your favorite.
