Button overload...

So, I wanted some buttons but couldn't be bothered going into town with a toddler & baby in tow. What to do..... online shopping of course but this does mean that the project needing those buttons gets stowed for a bit whilst I shop, then wait for delivery etc etc!

I kinda got a little distracted and have had a crazy idea to make them myself - here are some fab molds that I'm coveting ...but which one/s to choose?


Vintage Deco Button Flexible Silicone Mold/Mould (21mm) for Crafts, Jewelry, Scrapbooking, (resin, paper,  pmc, polymer clay) (227) Vintage Square Deco Button Flexible Silicone Mold/Mould (20mm) for Crafts, Jewelry, Scrapbooking, Sewing (resin, pmc, polymer clay) (228) Vintage Button Casting Mold  Flexible Silicone Mold/Mould for Crafts, Jewelry, (chocolate, fondant, candy, resin, pmc, polymer clay) (288)
These are my top favourite molds, they are from a shop called Mold Muse.

So, have you ever made buttons? If so, what did you use? I'm going to use Polymer clay, probably Sculpey clay.
