Notes for making buttons:

Always wear eye protection!
Prep stone for 3 part mold.
It needs to be flat and smooth!
Drill keyholds and set keys.
Use template for circle and carve perfect flat circle about in the center of the stone to a depth of slightly less than a dime.
Carve sprue and shank.
Do test pour.
Correct until circle and shank pour well.
Carve design.
Do test pour.
Correct until ready.
Cast as many as needed.

Try thicker stone next time 1/2 inch or so on each side. Try carving two buttons in one mold.

The sprue still looks like a comet tail. :-)
