Colour Theme - Cuckoo Clock

Hello!!!! Lisa here today with inspiration for this weeks challenge theme. It is of course, a colour theme week and they are a gorgeous variety of colours too. And defo one of my favs.... Purple!!! I just love any shade of purple!!!




For this week, I decided to work with Tando's Cuckoo Clock. I really like working with anything that can be displayed and used rather than spending hours creating something then sticking it in a drawer!

I enjoyed every step of creating this clock and I think I will be creating another one in the future. 

So here goes....




First, I put together all the layers of the Tando cuckoo clock then painted it with a quick coat of gesso.
I made templates for the windows and clock face and stamped and coloured them with Distress Ink and painted the rest of the clock with acrylic paint.
I used the Tando stripes mask for the roof area to give it some texture.
Then, I painted the numbers and clock hands with black gesso and randomly went over the top with gilding flakes.
I added a metal owl embellishment and metal wings to the top  of the clock to act as the cuckoo.
To finish, I added some clear glaze over the widows to make them glossy and added some plaited jute string for the winding chains. 







Here are all the Tando products I used:


      Cuckoo Clock      Number Set - Arthur      Clock Hands   Mask - Stripes



Hop over to the website for more inspiration and to join in with the challenges.
Thanks for popping by, 
toodles, Lisa xxx
