First I dismantled the clock :-) and primed the clockface with gesso. Now it was trial and error, sanding back colour, adding colour. It still looked a bit naked so I stamped the background with the roman numbers, the damaged clock, and the protractor, finally I added some of the embossing enamel and sealed everything. I die cut the cogs from rather thin cardboard and dry embossed them with the 'riveted metal' folder after I painted them with silver acrylic paint. Then layers and washes of various other acrylic paints were added and sanded back (turquoise, blue green, quin gold, black). Unfortunately the clock doesn't work anymore - no surprise there - but I think it's still kind of an eyecatcher when it will be hanging on the wall.
