421  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Well Read Time Keeper on: December 23, 2004 07:55:01 PM
I made a record clock for a friend's birthday over the summer, and started a small obsession.  This is the second in the clock series (I don't currently have a picture of the first).  I made this for my newspaper editor sister and she loves it.  I'm pretty impressed with how it came out, even though it's very simple.  I have several more Reader's Digest books (you can see my story about them here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20622.0, along with 2 book clutches) and many more clock parts, so I think there will be several more of these in the near future.

It stands on it's own and keeps perfect time (and my smartie sister doesn't need numbers).  I would love to hear and see new ideas for the book clocks.

i was thinking that the 'rustoleum brand' heat resistent spray paint would be good for this project...i might just have to try it...

Isn't punching holes in aerosal cans a big no-no?  I hope I'm wrong, because I definitly have several of those around....If it works with spray paint cans, please tell!

You can pick it up pretty much anywhere. I got some the other day from HomeDepot.  Some places/brands are cheaper than others, shop around.

what do you make these stencils out of? do you do it on the computer first then cut the stencil.  they look really great.  i am very interested to learn the art of the stencil.

I guess you could say I'm more of a traditionalist...I like to draw out all of my stencils.  I'll use photocopy machines to enlarge and increase contrast (sometimes photoshop) and then I go over the lines that I'm cutting out, and use whiteout to make bridges.
I usually do mine on manilla folders or posterboard, depending on size.

i use regular people and actually pin the stencil down so it doesn't move, but this is kind of the "hard way."

There's an amazing product called spray adheasive.  It will soon become your best friend EVER.  It will create perfect temporary bonds so you can remove your stencil after painting it.  One spray should last for several uses.  No underspray ever again.

I have some of my work on my livejournal
but there are so many amazing stencilers out there, try looking at
