1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another re-Done clock 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.

 I had the same thing with plaster the first time I did anything with resin. I vaguely remember naively using hand lotion for mold release.

Heat to soften the plastic?

I've cut liquor bottles, and they seem way more brittle than mirror glass. Wore down the cutting wheels pretty quickly though.

So it turns out EasyCast is actually an epoxy? (stop me if I'm wrong) Actual casting resin (with the catalyst you just use a few drops of instead of the 50/50) fuses to itself while curing, allowing people to pour several layers on top of each other parfait style after they've set with no unsightly seams.

If easycast does the same thing, it seems like it would be easy enough to do one half, then set it on top of the second half while it's hardening. I've always wanted to try this with resin, but haven't yet.

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with it, as it was just supposed to keep me satisfied until the 2 foot one gets built for my porch.

The stalk is supported by a steel rod inside it.

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.

Marvelous as is. I d on't see any reason to over do it. I'm just worried about how  visible the hands are.

She's 3/4" particle board I dragged in from the alley behind my house. I'll probably suck it up and buy the quality stuff next time because the porous surface drank the paint and faded the color a little bit (even with a coat of polyurethane). Also the splintery-ness of it sucked. It was nice and soft though, so the jigsaw cut through it like guacamole.

3/4 inch particle board pulled from the alley. Once it leaned on the metal poles it was very stable and withstood rowdy people throwing all kinds of things. The head broke off and had to be reattached because of the weak points on the sides of his mouth. I definitely would have designed it differently had I noticed that before I cut it out.
