1  Another re-Done clock in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Fiasco on: July 14, 2007 06:55:28 AM
A very standard goodwill wall clock with its face replaced. I designed it in photoshop (replacing minutes with degrees of a circle marks) and printed it on card stock at kinko's as we are lame and do not have a printer.

Also spraypainted the cream-white body because it just looked horrible with a white face on a white wall.

It's spray-painted sculpey sitting in a plaster-filled PVC pipe. The leaf isn't that visible from the angle I shot this photo, but it's there. This is going on my desk at work next to my plastic veloceraptor to combat all my coworkers' cute stuffed animals.

3  Throw Bottles at a Clown game in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Fiasco on: May 11, 2007 09:21:02 PM
The Monster Maggie was so satisfying to make That I decided to make a carnival game cut-out for a party we were having. Sorry pics of the end result aren't available, but it was just like this, except with a towel/trashcan combo screwed to the back to catch the bottles, knives, and underwear thrown through his mouth. The prize for landing one in there was a kick in the butt. Good times.
Credit to Lauren for helping out so much with the black outlining

(children shown for scale)

At first I left her pupils off out of laziness, then decided she actually looked better like that than in the original drawing:

6  Mini goomba. Ruler tattoo included for scale in Completed Projects by Fiasco on: January 03, 2007 05:47:48 PM

My eight year old roommate was so impressed with the goomba I had made that she approached me this morning asking if I could make one out of this sponge ball.

And of course I needed an excuse to show off my tattoo.

The other goomba:

I really don't see why these two shouldn't get along.

8  Mario Bros Question Mark block in Completed Projects by Fiasco on: October 22, 2006 09:47:50 PM
It is about 12"x12"x12". It has 4 nearly identical sides- brass with steel ?'s. There are no coins or mushrooms in it yet, but someday...

9  Re: Taking apart a Clock -- how? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Fiasco on: October 16, 2006 10:39:36 PM
My most recent clock was nice and was shaped with lots of surface area to facilitate gluing on the new face. White glue failed and wood glue worked, but of course do whatever you've had success with before.
Seems the best clocks to customize are the ones that have the hanging hole on the actual clock part, and have the threaded stalk where the hands go, so a nut can afix the face to clock.
As far as the clear plastic tabs go, I've used clear tape to replace up to one (of three) of the originals. It works, but is kind of shaky like you don't want to juggle the clock when you're done with it.

10  Another F-ing Clock. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Fiasco on: October 16, 2006 05:05:22 PM

I will probably fill those holes with a switch and a small light if I can keep it small enough.
In what SHOULD have been a 10 minute project (meshing a dollar store clock with this 1958 photo process timer) I managed to take several hours. The face was much harder than I expected to remove. Two grinder wheels, a dremel, and the pictured snips were all required.

As a bonus, the original clock frame had this brick texture going around it, begging to be turned into something Mario Bros. related.
