TUTORIAL: TWO-HOLE BUTTONS (download)
TWO-HOLE BUTTONS *
Buttons are so much fun to design and create! Heather's button passion goes back to 2003. She is still on a mission to populate the world with contemporary glass buttons.
NEW:Includes a video!
Note: The Trimlett Two-Hole Button Mandrels used in this tutorial are sold separately and available here on my website.

Heather designed her Two-Hole Button tutorial for students who are unable to take a class with her personally.
Note from Heather: "Just imagine that you are in my studio for a private lesson. Here is your chance to "watch" me work, and have me "talk" you through the process of honing your buttonmaking skills."
Goals for this tutorial:
- Get comfortable with my Two-Hole Button Mandrel.
- Learn to make a narrow touchdown for the center of a two-hole button.
- Learn to melt the ridges in smoothly.
