Just in time.....D

Well here I am again with an altered clock - a clock I bought second hand for a fiver.  It was a really cheap looking plastic  and saw it as a challenge for me lol. I coated the sides with paper napkins to give a creased effect and the top and botton a brick stencil with paste.  My fav stencil at the moment.  I used paste, my fav technique as it looks different everytime, on the clock face and on the backing inside.  I used several coats of paint, sprays and rub until I was pleased with the effect.  I broke the pendulum off and stuck it skewiff lol.  I used 4 charms for the points on the clock and used buff on those and the clockhands.  I painted the back and sides with silver paint - took several coats and was losing the will to live lol.  Now I will swamp you all with pics!  SORRY

 









Well thats it from me for now - may be back later but don't hold your breathe ha ha ha!
