Tando Clocks week with Gio

Remember Tando's Printer's tray style clock Neil made and we featured yesterday. Well who would believe this is the same clock Gio altered? Talk about a huge different in style and look although they used the same clock to start with. 
Can't wait to read you comments 
(and yes, as one of you mentioned, I did put the comment moderation back on. I know it's sometimes annoying and I'm very sorry.
But the amount of "anonymous" emails we were receiving daily was really getting out of control. To give you an example, during my holiday, I got over 470! and they don't go in the spam folder, we have to sort them out)

I painted the outer part of the Tando's Printers tray style clock with Fresco Finish South Pacific paint. Once dry, I covered with 
Viva Croco Paint: transparent. When that was dry, I applied some Americana Quinacridone gold to give a worn look.
I glued behind the clock a metallic net , found at the hardware store.

I prepared the embellishments: I cut some pieces of zip and I rolled them with a help of PVA glue. 
I painted the Tando chipboard letters with black acrylic paint, to form the word Time;I painted the Tando cogs chipboards using Fresco Finish Paint Finish South Pacific and adding some texture with DecoArt Texture Sand; I even add to the clock some pieces of black veil.
The clock: I painted a piece of white crumpled cardstock using Americana Quinacridone gold and Warm White. I stamped che clock face using Jet Black Archival ink and CI-353

  1. Some very interesting elements here. I like the idea of the mesh on the back of the clock - it makes the other elements look as if they are floating.The zip flowers are great & I bet the piece is very tactile in real life with lots of texture.

  2. Great Transformation of this clock blank love all the textures zip flowers are fab thanks for sharing
