You can coat the clock with 2 coats of the iron paint but I wanted it to be streaky so I only did one. Once the clock was layered I added the rust activator to get it rusting. Apply until desired effect. Don't worry if you go onto the glass...I liked this look.
I used oven liner for the back of my clock. I pressed down on the sides of the clock backing to get my impression then cut! this will be the base for my design.
Once you have the back cut I used my embossing folder to create texture.
Using the new Distress Paints and Stains I layered one at a time heating and sanding between layers.
Sand until you get the amount of distressed look you want.
There's those new rub on's again! I wasn't sure if I would like this look but it really works for me. It's subtle, just what I wanted.
You can see in the back the embossed and inked oven liner. It really helps the layers pop!
Can I just say the Enamel Tags are my new Fave! Adding the rub on's to the tag and to the little metal frame is so great in small spots. The sprockets are attached with the Tiny Attacher and a strip of Film Ribbon. The gent leans on the lantern as if to hold it.
This Brit is a fantastic stamp, perfect for my clock. I stamped onto grunge board with Black Archival then cut him out. I popped him with a little Rock Candy but just on the black parts.
For the lantern I modified the back, punching a hole. Then I attached the battery pack on with Velcro. This way the pack doesn't sit on my shelf...nice and hidden.
It's a bit grainy because of the dark however the lantern is on!
I was challenged to come up with something unique for this Clock...I hope I didn't disappoint:)
I'm excited to add this clock to my Media, along with some of the other cool things I have down there. I picked up another clock too! Halloween anyone? I thought I'd play along with Simon Says and enter this into their challenge blog:)
Thanks for stopping by. I hope this inspired you to make a clock of your own!
