tick tock part three

this one was actually the first clock i did, and the wood was premade - you know, one of those already shaped and sanded for clock-making. The hearts are handmade paper with pieces of twisted strings in them, and the numbers in 3-D paint - better known as puffy paint.

tick tock part two

now I just finished another clock - this time done with a premade little wooden suitcase. It's about 5.25" long and 3 .5" in height. The movement used in this one is the same size as the one previous (see below) so I didn't have to change the drill bit or anything. The hands, of course, is a bit shorter. I used a leaf stamp in gold but it was smeared while applying the varnish with a foam brush but I think it gives it a unique look. Which is why I didn't add any numbers or dots markers.

tick tock part one

Well, here's something I didn't have in my sketch book of ideas, but it worked out very well. Originally it was a mirror stand. Now it's a clock stand - prototype - and the paint job isn't the best but it works fine and has an interesting look to it. The "head" portion can be adjusted up and down. I have three more and so off I go into the workshop!
