A friend of mine, Lynn B, is always out finding treasures and she found this old clock for a quarter! Yep, that's right a quarter. The 2 legs were broken and the clock face would not stay in the hole. She brought it to me and asked if I would want something like it. Why yes I would, I said. This is one of those things you see on the .25 table and just walk by. Well from now on I hope you take a second look at that .25 junk and think of this.
This picture is after I took the face out.
Here is the clock in the shape I received it. It is not to bad. Just needed a little tender loving care! Some 7 gypsies paper and some ten seconds metal and 1 day.
I took the clock apart and sanded it, just to rough it up a bit. I knew I was going to use the 7 gypsies paper, but I did not know what else I was going to do with it. I have been wanting to use my ten seconds metal that I had purchased a while back. (you know one of those things you just have to try/have) So lets give it a try. I used a brown piece of the metal and this is what it looked like after I sanded it. So I knew I was gonna have to slap some paint on it. I put some yellow ochre on it and sanded that a bit, then added the brown on top. I wiped that off a bit and it turned out perfect.
