If the hobby of tinkering and that of painting are our main thing, then nothing is precluded for the creation of decorative details and objects for the home. If indeed, we practice and familiarity, in either case, we can implement such as a DIY clock functional and refined. In the next steps, we see therefore how to maximise the result.
Be sure to have on hand:
- Wooden board
- Tempera paints
- Final varnish for paintings
- Printed dial
- Quartz movement
To create a retro style wall clock shabby chic or liberty, so typical of the beginning of the twentieth century, we can use the wood on which paint over with tempera, and then apply low relief maybe made from polymer clay. In the cancermatters, the clock becomes this by adding a quartz movement, whose fitting as we will see in the next steps, is very simple. With everything at your disposal, we see therefore how to process our artifact.
Having shaped the face of the clock and then square-shaped and with the upper part in a semicircle (as shown in the picture of the previous step), first we care can sand it out and then coat it with cementite, so get the pores of the wood perfectly blocked, and a smooth and silky therefore ideal to put our decorations. The main body of the watch must obviously be accompanied at the center of a hole about a centimeter in diameter, as it serves to insert the quartz movement. The latter so we can buy in a store that sells supplies for watchmakers at a price of slightly more than 4 euros, and to which we must add the cost of a battery of the type AA 1.5 Volt. At this point after decorated around the front, with transparent acrylic glue join the roses and other decorations made from fimo and colored with tempera, and then we set the Dial that we found on the web, and printed on a card after it is enlarged.
The clock made with the technique of DIY and home improvement is therefore ready, so we just have to insert the quartz movement. In response to this, just pull the center pin of the movement in the hole above the wood, and fix it with the provided threaded liner that is supplied with the mounting kit. In the end, we can add the hour and minute hands, and long, thin hands. Then insert the battery, when the work is complete and the clock we can finally hang on the wall or place it on a tripod is typically used to paint on canvas.
