20th December 2013: bottons I finally made a bunch of candy bottons with the right colors
2nd August 2013: bottons this costume is for february so I have a lot of time for experimenting new materials and pay atention to detail. I was searching for information about resins for making gems that I need for the shirt bottons. But everything was so confusing and quite expensive. Sooo I found a recipe to make gems with hard CANDY. I feel much confortable in the kitchen than in the workshop so I try to find molds but the shipping cost were too much. Then I decided to try different materials to make my own molds. I tried clay, pastecine and jumping clay. The problems is that the sugar is very hot when you pour it on the mold, about 260 degrees. The clay didn´t work at all because there was no way to take the Candy out of the mold even thou a put a lot of oil. the jumping clay seemed to work but when I took the Candy out there were bubbles inside and the surface was to rough for a gem, it would be fine for a precious Stone before it´s shaped but not for a gem. But the plasticine worked just perfect, it has to be thick thou. So I got the "ruby" bottons just with sugar, cream of tartar, water, food coloring and plasticide, all of them materials that I already had at home. Then I paint them with several layers of trasparent nail polish to prevent them to became sticky or disolved ( I tested soaking them overnight to make sure). Easy and very very cheap.
