Baking Buttons

We all know that baking cookies is a perfectly valid study technique. If you're working on Coraline at all, I'd suggest baking these.

It's wonderful when a story takes such a simple object and turns it into something magical, terrifying or extraordinary, because it leaves such potential for rethinking that object out here in the real, everyday world. In effect, the story forever twists our perception of that perfectly ordinary object and when we encounter it, we hear the echoes of the story and we shiver.
