So I altered this lovely Prima Metal Frame Clock from........
Like what you see? Then read on for the written tutorial :)
|Apply a thin layer of white Gesso|
Once dry, put on a 2nd coat of Tim Holtz Clear Crackle Paint
Premixed Prima 3D gloss gel with micro beads and apply on the top and front of clock concentrating on the centre portion
|Apply a thin layer of Prima Chalkboard Paint in SeaBreeze|
Once dry, add more texture with Art Anthology Stone Effects Dimensional Medium in Sandstone concentrating on the micro beads area
|Next, prepare the backing for the embellishment. |
I have recycled the packaging from the clock and also a scrap cardboard cut out from carton box.
Dimension of the circle should be about 13cm
|Randomly peel off the top layer of the cardboard piece to reveal these pretty grooves. |
Then apply a layer of white Gesso to prepare it for mediums we will be adding on.
|Next I have used 2 different Prima Texture Paste on the cardboard backing as shown in the picture.|
Prima Texture Paste in Graphite and White Sand
|In case you have not notice from the previous picture, I have decided to cut out another small piece of cardboard for more layers.|
|Prima Resin has been dabbled with Chalk Ink for a worn look|
|Distress the paper string with white Gesso or white paint and you are done with the preparation of your decorations.|
|Adhere your embellishments to the cardboard backing before sticking it onto the rim of the clock.|
|Final steps, tie the string round the top of the clock and top up some prettiness with a flower.|
In order to get the nice curls, I have use a quilling tool to twirl both ends of the strings
|That's it. You are done! Not that difficult isn't it? :)|
Here's more close up photos of my completed project.
And the good news is most of the supplies are available in Made With Love Singapore!
