Creating and finishing Christmas gifts,
as well as doing the same for the Etsy Shop,
has me running in circles lately.
Just when I think I've started (and maybe even finished some) projects,
more pop in my head...yes the race is on!
I'm pretty safe showing this one...
C never looks at my blog (here's hoping he doesn't start now)
He loves pocket watches.
My Dad always carried one so I think that's where he gets his fascination for them.
He has started quite a little collection.
He even received a gorgeous engraved one from his counselor
when he graduated from High School.
So what do you make a guy who loves pocket watches???
Need a few thinking caps for this one.
I had this new clock in my Treasure Pile.
Yes, it was destined for a project but
that was so long ago I've forgotten what it was.
Does this happen to you too?
So I decided to make him a wall clock that resembles a huge pocket watch.
First I dissembled it.
I realized I needed something for the bail and winding knob.
I took apart one of my Dad's old pocket watches and
used the frame for the bail.
Then found a wooden bead that would work for the knob.
I found some gold spray paint in the garage and coated all the parts.
(byw, how do you like my painting booth?)
(my glitter station)
Hey, we are a high class operation here!
But I still can't figure out why it looks like the Glitter Fairy ran through my house? hmm
A little E6000, more gold paint for the black chain and fob
and here we have.....
a wall clock that resembles a pocket watch.
I just hung it on a wall for the photos,
the chain-clock are not properly spaced,
but you can get the idea.
I added "Newton Clocks" to the face.
Hoping he likes it :)
The others will have to wait until after Christmas
since they come in here from time to time.
But I might be able to give a peek or two.... ;)
I still have more to make,
so off to get busy!
