I have been playing with paper, or more specifically card, recently and turning it into clocks.
It took a lot of time to cut out all the layers, then glue them all together but it gives a surprisingly sturdy result. I am really pleased with them and have lots of ideas for other designs.
After that I painted everything black, with several layers of paint, then added a top layer of burnished bronze paint.
The clock movements are the silent quartz style. What do you think? Available at Etsy
