That’s Crafty! have extended their range of acrylic pieces which now includes clock stacks in a variety of shapes for you to alter. These new items were launched last Friday on Hochanda, you wiil still be able to watch Fridays shows on catch up on the Hochanda website.
I am sharing with you the clock I altered for the TV shows.
The clocks are 1 layer of MDF (back) and 3 layers of acrylic, the MDF numbers and a clock mechanism. All you have to do is decorate however you wish.
Here’s What I Did:-
The first thing I do, once I have my theme, is work out my layers. I then layout the acrylic making sure that I have removed the protective film (I have made that mistake before!!)
I then stamp on all my stamped items on each layer using black Stazon ink. I keep putting the stack back together just checking that it is lined up correctly. If not you can easily remove your stamping with rubbing alcohol. Once I was happy with the placement of my stamped images each one was coloured from behind using a combination of PaperArtsy Fresco paints and Posca paint pens.
Once happy with my acrylic layers I decorated the MDF back piece. I actually covered the MDF with book pages from an Alice in Wonderland story book and gave them a light coat of watered down gesso. I then stencilled through the Harlequin Dinky stencil using black Archival ink and Cut and Dry Foam. I also added some hearts using red acrylic paint through the Hearts Dinky stencil, when all was dry I edged the background with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
Last stage was to paint the numbers with white paint and stamp the chequerboard onto them. Before finally putting all the layers together I added a selection of mini playing cards to each layer.
Here are the layers before I put the stack together
