How-To:
This tutorial covers lots of fun projects made with Dichro-ISH Films which have had texture added in some way.

I love these beautiful buttons!  

You'll first pour clear resin into your mold, not very deep, then insert your textured Dichro-ISH Films cut to size using the template that comes with our molds.  

Let that set up, demold, and Dome Up your buttons, inserting Clear Button Backs.  

This doming layer can be clear (as shown above), or black for a more dramatic look. 

It's easy to make beautiful, lightweight, washable buttons!


Here's a quick overview of the colors in our Dichro-ISH Films, and how they look when textured, and on light vs. dark backgrounds.
