I make polymer clay flat back centers. Nothing is made with a mold. They are generally 100% made/rolled by hand.

Im thinking the same as the previous poster. We tried to make some with a mold and it was a mess. The polymer clay stuck to the mold and it was a nightmare. Definately wasnt something we wanted to continue! lol

I do rememeber there were books available at hobby lobby.

Thank You. I just want a bunch of flatbacks at wholesale prices. I've seen vendors selling tiny resins for like 75 each.

We use them for bow centers. Honestly, they are pretty pricy. They are heavy and require HUGE moq orders from overseas to get a "good" price.

However, when you consider the mark up from wholesale to retail, .75 isnt an awful price.

You may also want to consider flat back buttons such as these at Little pea boutique.

Cathi is a dream to work with. She is quick, reliable and has a good quaility product.

HTH.
