Altered clock.

Good morning,
 its the Dragon's turn to share a stamped project with you.
I saw a programme a few weeks ago about the 'Antikythera mechanism',
I loved the look of the corroded metal so i tried to replicate it on this altered clock.

I used clay, rolled out thinly and stamped into it.
Once the clay sheets were baked I adhered them to the clock.
I added flakes of dry clay and filler to the edges to give the appearance of the outer casing being corroded away.

Once everything was totally dry i painted the entire clock with black paint.
Then dry brushed with dark brown and mid brown paint.
I stamped the centre of the clock face with a watch mechanism stamp, 
for added interest.
To give it a real rusty corroded appearance i used ORIGINAL RUST,
rubbed all over it....twice.
Below you can see the rusty detail.... i think it looks pretty authentic.
