I made this for a recent swap where my partner had mentioned liking Dali style clocks and after failing a few times with polymers trying to make a pendant...I decided to get a little more literal and came up with this:



I took the face off, panted it orange and covered it in ant stickers. one even rides around on the second hand.



side views
note that the orange pocket watch covered in ants is missing from the painting.
the dark brown background  was the original color of the clock...and it does have a bend to it which made it so perfect..
The paint is regular ol acrylics..
I also sealed it with glow in the dark mod podge. Because I couldn't find my plain....

the original to refresh, although I know most of you are very familiar  Wink
