Making Buttons

I was hoping to have a break in the weather to fire up my raku kiln to make pottery buttons. I have several new raku glazes I want to test  and a few sweaters that need some artistic button upgrades. Instead, I had to settle on these dark brown clay buttons to run in my electric kiln.
Here is a picture of the brown buttons drying in my dryer.   I used a homemade pottery stamp for the design and cocktail straws to make the holes.  I am trying to decide if I will use an underglaze on a few.  So many decisions and so little time.
