Miss Lydia Pickett Cottage Clock in 1:12 scale, part 5

by brae  

Continuing work on the Miss Lydia Pickett Cottage Clock in 1:12 scale by Robin Betterley's Miniatures.

After sanding down the gesso primer coat, I painted the clock Greenscape by Folk Art and finished with Delta Ceramcoat Satin Varnish.  The artwork for the body and base is from The Graphics Fairy.  I used the image as is for the base but then used elements from the original to create a design for the body in PhotoShop.

I printed on paper and then cut the pieces to fit.  The inserts were later glued in place using Mini Graphics Wallpaper Mucilage.  As you can see, the clock face pendant no longer worked since it was darker than the artwork and seemed to be lost.

I printed a regular clock dial in a similar color to the body art as a replacement.  Much better.

I painted the clock face trims and the finial Taupe Metallic by Folk Art.  I painted some accents in the same color on the body and base.

I used the Cricut to cut cardstock circles to fill in the upper hole.  I glued these in place with tacky glue before gluing the clock face with Mini Graphics Wallpaper Mucilage.

The final steps include adding the hands, the glass insert and other small details that are too much for tonight.  :D  Back soon...

I do enjoy watching you work. I am working on a House of Miniatures grandfather's clock. I have it assembled and ready to paint. Most of the wood furniture in my modern Texas farmhouse is white, all made from the kits. I am holding off on the clock finish trying to decide if I should paint it white or not. I love this little clock. I am not familiar with gesso or other product that you used--the molding? I also ordered the shower base that you used in your shower. Love it. You are teaching us so much. Thank you.

It looks lovely. The silver touches on the base and body are just enough to tie the clock face in. and I love your design. Gives me the impression of old wood cut images.

Oh this is to pretty! I love the colour you chose for the clock, it reminds me of the (Danish) grandfather clock my parents had. Anna
