made these for a personal swap, vintage halloween cat buttons and a pin. I mixed a little black paint with liquid clay and applied it around the edge of the buttons and sanded it off in places to give a worn look.




not a tutorial as such but a few photos to give you some idea of how i made the cat cane.




i cut the cane in two at this point as i wanted to create two different canes, one to pack with orange as a background to make the buttons and another to leave as it was to cut a slice from to make the brooch


making the mouth






one of the finished canes.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

The way you can make canes has baffled me before and when I saw the buttons,  I knew you used a cane, but couldn't wrap my head around how you did it!  Cheesy You've got such a talent and your skills are incredible as well!
Love them!
