New Clock in the Works

 I'm hoping to have a few clocks in the September show, and it looks like I'll have at least one. Watercolor seems to suit the clock faces more than acrylic.

This is the only the first layer of watercolor on the face. I'll post the succeeding layers later.

Old electric clocks that have ceased to run are my favorites to use. Since clock shops don't like to spend the time it would take to repair electrics, I don't feel bad about putting in a new quartz movement and giving the beautiful case a new life.

The painting is the easy part. For me, the hardest step is putting the whole thing together for a sturdy, finished clock.

Thanks for checking in!
