Extra Large Shield Shaped Button Finished in Obvara
Our handmade Obvara stoneware buttons are handpainted before being decorated in a 4-500 year old technique. The process makes each a unique item. Even though we carefully fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives character to each piece.
The shank on the extra large button allows the piece to be used for bag closures, sweaters, shirts and blouses, shawls and hats. Because the piece is slightly curved, it will lay nicely against the garment.
The finished decoration on the pieces is a hallmark of LickinFlames. The button takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. After the pieces are individually removed from the kiln and decorated and cooled, each is washed, and dried. Six coats of satin acrylic is applied to the piece before the shank is attached to finish the piece.

Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
