Turquoise buttons from polymer clay

turquoise-mix.jpgI have this side sweater project I’ve been working on for a while and I want to use turquoise beads for buttons.  However I just found out how to make turquoise with polymer clay. I think I’ll try this out.

It suggests using a food processor to chop the clay to develop the texture and cracked look, but I think I’m going to pass on that.
