Making Metallic Silver & Gold Buttons with Dura-Lar April 26 2017
We're really excited about making metallic gold and silver buttons with Dura-Lar!!
Using Dura-Lar Film is the easiest way to make Do-It-Yourself buttons that look lavish and luxurious.
The SILVER & GOLD DURA-LAR used in this video is reversible, with gold on one side and silver on the other. The Metallic Dura-Lar Foil is 2mm thick, comes in standard 8.5 x 11" sheets, and has an EXTREMELY reflective mirror-like finish. Doesn't that sound awesome for a button??!
**When making Dura-Lar Buttons, it is the Glossy or Matte Dura-Lar that goes through the printer, and NOT the metallic Dura-Lar! The metallic Dura-Lar foil goes behind the transparent Dura-Lar film. **
Curious to see some other examples of buttons made with Dura-Lar Film and reflective Metallic Dura-Lar Foil? Here are some older blog posts that feature buttons with special finishes! Which one do you like the best?Instructional Video: Making Buttons with Dura-Lar
