I could not find any clock faces or more to the point watch faces in a size or price range I needed. So, not to be defeated, I created my own.

Searched online for photos of clocks, sized them to some large buttons I had. Printed them out and glued them to the buttons. I tied thread to the ones with holes...just in case I needed to sew them on. Several coats of ModgePodge later, I had clock buttons.

Now I need to make the chokers, wrist cuffs and other Steampunk paraphernalia!

Excellent stuff, I'm on a hunt for steampunk prettiness as well. I really love the aged ones, did you print them out like that or is it some sort of tea dip and splatter process?

(If you ever have time to make a tutorial I'd be all over it...  Grin )

I printed out aged looking clocks. I did add a bit of yellow ochre to the Mod Podge for some of them. Nice way to age. Added some black paint to the edges. Some of the buttons were of odd colors.
