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!
