Clocks - Tagfather Clock


I knew straight away what I wanted to achieve this week.  So here it is.............

My Tagfather Clock!!



It works too and I still have the strap of the watch to use on another project - waste not want not!  I had fun using the Ranger Metal Tape and alcohol and of course Tim's ideology too.  Watch from Derby and Silver metal flower from my pal Jo which she bought all the way from Singapore!


I coloured the pearl topper with alcohol ink and the faux enamelling was achieved with the same.


My pretty pendulum is an ideology charm with a couple of silver bells as counter weights.


Wanted to keep that tag shape and I think it has given my clock a slight Art Deco feel to it.  I really enjoyed embossing this metal foil product.  It makes me want to invest in some of the specialist tools out there.


Last photo - I really must learn how to make one of those wonderful photo montages for occasions like this!

Thank you so much everyone for all your wonderful comments last week - I am still suffering from too much snipping as I went on to make another project that involved tons of it - another clock as it happens!

Hugs from Helen x

  3. This is totally stunning - what a lot of work and what a brilliant result. I love the fact that it still works - how cool is that!
    By the way, if you want to make photo montages I find the easiest way is picmonkey.com - it's brilliant and incredibly easy to use!
