Clay distressed buttons and beads

Well its been a while since i made anything at all but was inspired to join in the challenge a Lots to do 
I had a little play with some rough (unwhitened ) air drying clay and made these distress look buttons and beads. The camera doesnt do them much justice as they are painted brighter than they look with a metallic cream over the top in antique metallics. I wanted them to look distressed and think i achieved that much. I am pretty pleased considering its my first play with clay of any kind.
