Summit Tools

1755 Springfield Rd #114, Kelowna, BC V1Y 5V5

Have been going here for almost 20 years, staff have always been helpful, respectful, and if they are new, will pass off the questions to the more experienced staff. New staff members aren’t left in the dark for long, they seem to keep education and part/tool familiarity a priority. Prices are reasonable, with many common used items regularly going on sale. Highly recommended.

Nautical Clock

Things needed:

Clock with preferably raised designs

Small Screw-Driver (Dependent on clock assembly)

8 Finisher Nails

Clay (Sculpey or FIMO or in this case both)

To start off, I chose and mixed and rolled the following colors to create a fake ‘stick’.  Clay brown, gold orange, dark brown, light brown, red, white, lemon yellow, black, blue and dark brown.

I chopped the stick into 16 pieces, 8 at 1 inch each, and 8 one and a 1/2 inch.  The 1 inch I rolled into circles, and the 1 1/2 inch and rolled the ends to create a smooth oval bead.20180314_135919

I disassembled the clock, removed the rim, and made eight evenly spaced marks on the inside, then put a nail through each one, directly center on the band. I then poked the beads onto the nails like so.

I removed each set of beads, trying to keep them attached to each other, and baked at 175 for 40 minutes.

After re-attaching the now cooked beads, I mixed dark brown, gold and bronze, and painted the inner rim, leaving the silver raised dots in the middle as silver to make the ‘rivets’ pop.

Once the paint was dry, I reassembled and Viola!

Mark’s

500 1500 Banks Road, Kelowna Central Park Power Cntre Phase 1, Kelowna, BC V1X 7Y1

Have been going to this store since opening day, and have always been satisfied with what they have to offer, as their prices are reasonable, and their material and handiwork isn’t a cheap knock off, and appeals to both sexes. While their selection of tough wear is large, such as cargo pants and waterproof boots, they also now include an entire section of comfy things, both for men and women! On a side note, this store has ridiculous left and right entry doors, with the counter directly in the front middle of the store. My last visit, they had finally been moved to a more logical location, allowing one to walk directly into the store. Thumbs up!

First I rolled out a line of white, and rolled out two balls of using all the colors of brown, to make a base to build on.

I bent a two inch wire into an U, put it on the base, and covered it with chunk of white pressed to about this shape:

With toothpicks I began to pick at the clay and poke at it till it looked like fur.

I rolled out 2 black balls for the eyes, a pinch bigger ball for his nose, and a larger ball for the mouth. I flattened the mouth ball and shaped it into a mouth shape, with a connector piece for the nose. With a toothpick I poked two nose holes in the top of the nose and attached it to the mouth connector. A few chunks of white clay created the teeth, once again using a toothpick to create the desired look.

For the tongue, I flattened out an oval of red, pushed a toothpick down the middle, and curled it to suit.

Placed eyes.

Rolled out super thin lines of gold white and brown mix, and placed with toothpicks to create facial expression and hair for the back of the head.

The Home Depot

2515 Enterprise Way, Kelowna, BC V1X 6C1

Refuse to buy any large appliance or item that will be subcontracted through this company. Once appliance is ordered and sent to you, they wash their hands of any responsibility. My friend ordered a washing machine and when it arrived, most of the parts were missing, making this piece unusable. Frustrated, she called Home Depot to request that a proper one be sent out, to which they said they would send a repair kit?! After much fighting and being pushed off to their delivery company, she was told 6 days was the best they could do – She has two small children and the laundry pile is climbing, and it is still another 6 days without a washing machine.
