London Denim – Clay Model Jeans Buttons

I’m going to be casting my brass jeans button in the UK using a method called Lost Wax Casting so need to create a model the mould will be made from.  This involves working in clay to create the model.  I’ve using FIMO as I’ve worked with it before and it can be fired in a normal oven.   Its been an experimentation day today working with the clay and understanding how smooth and fine i can make the detailing on the buttons.   Below some of the initial results.  I have a lot of work to do!
