Wall clocks have always been a favorite item for me to create. This time I used the Black Currant Color Splash watered down like water color paint to color the white Little Birdie flowers and I also mixed it with clear soft wax over chalk paint to create depth. I like to combine Steampunk elements with more feminine elements like flowers to create a softer feel.
Step 1Stencil gears with the Mixed Media paste randomly across a circle canvas and leave to dry. Once dry paint the top and sides with a light coloured chalk paint. Leave to dry
Step 2Stencil Tinted Metallic Paint : Golden Plum randomly through the "Spotty" stencil across the canvas.
Adhere twine with Gel Medium to the sides of the circle canvas.
Spritz a little Black Currant Color Splash on your craft sheet and dilute with a little water to form water-color paint. Paint some of the white flowers. Leave to dry.
Step 5Apply clear wax across the surface, then ad dark wax and the Color Splash to create definition and depth. Once dry, dry brush the raised areas with Tinted Metallic paint: Golden Plum.
Step 6Insert the clock mechanism but do not attach the clock arms yet. You can put the battery in. Decorate with flowers and gears, e few buttons and pearls. Finally ad the arms and your done!
Here are a few close up photos of my clock:
I used the following Little Birdie Craft supplies for this project:
