Bunny Buttons




Keep in mind that these bunny buttons are less than 1" in diameter. I am at the final stage of spraying them with acryllic and sanding between coats.. I like about 8-10 coats. I only paint on 4-5 at a sitting as it is quite tedious with many layers of paint....unlike CQ stitching which I can do for hours at a time.....If I can leave the paints out, I'll do 10-12 at a time over 3-4 days... I like the bunnies and will add them to the list of cottages, birds and roses...

Beading around the button can be done at anytime and I wait until I'm going to attach it to something to make a decision on the color of the beads...

I have already dyed a little lace for Marya's block this morning and as this is my last night to make major messes I am going to do my polymer faces for the upcoming DYOB.

I love your sweet little bunnies!!! And, who could forget the little cottage buttons you create!! As a painter myself I can recognize the amount of work that goes into these little pieces of art.

The bunnies are lovely, so is the cottage! Very clever of you to paint so nice on such a little scale.
Bravo :)

I'm sitting here amazed! So cute and such tiny detail. I have trouble painting walls and window sashes. LOL
Thanks for sharing.
