Fireworks buttons are made of glass fused onto copper. They are washable, but may chip if struck with a hard object, so turn clothes inside out for washing . Drying in a dryer is not recommended.
Larger buttons are more likely to chip, so clothing with large buttons should be washed gently and hung to dry.

Glass powders are fired onto pure copper in an electric kiln. At 1600 F the glass melts and fuses to the copper.

Flowing patterns that suggest waves, feathers or fire are made by scrolling a red-hot iron rod through the molten glass. Transparents allow the the rich warm colour of the copper to shine through.

Several firings are required to complete each design.
