Hello friends. I hope you all are doing great. DT member Vidhu Thareja back on the blog with another inspirational project.
Wall clock is not only a necessity but a style statement for your decor too. We all like to have beautiful and unique clocks. This time I have designed a wall clock which is very easy to make. All we need is some awesome craft supplies from Itsy Bitsy. So let’s start the project.
I had a square MDF clock base measuring 10*10 inches. I had started making it but the results did not turn up to be as I expected. So, I thought of giving it a makeover. I started with sanding the surface. For that, I used Little Birdie Craft sanding block. This is an amazing product and a must have for any crafter. It makes sanding so easy. It is washable and reusable. When I was done with sanding, I applied 2 coats of Little Birdie Acrylic White Gesso leaving enough drying time between each coat.
Itsy Bitsy has recently introduced MDF clock dial in different sizes. I decided to use 5″ size for my project. I like the smoothness and finishing of the product.
On this round chipboard piece I planned to do decoupage but I wanted to add some interest also. First, I applied Little Birdie Chalk Paint – Lavender Blush and let it dry. After that I applied 1 Step Crackle Medium using the dabbing method. I left it to dry naturally. Then I applied Chalk Paint – Snow.
I had a pretty decoupage napkin in my stash which I had bought from the store. I removed the image using the wet brush technique and adhered it in the center using Little Birdie Deco Magic Glue. I left it to dry and then sealed it with the same glue. Then I applied 1 coat of Little Birdie Decor Varnish – Gloss.
Now it is time to work on my base. Here I have used masking technique. First I gave 2 coats of Little Birdie Chalk Paint – Wisteria Mist and left it to dry.
I wanted to add some more interest so I decided to do some stenciling. For that I have used one of my favourite products, Little Birdie 2in1 Mixed Media Paste – White. I selected a 4*4 inch Little Birdie Stencil ‘Garden Vine’ from my stash. I applied the mixed media paste through stencil with the help of a palette knife and left it to dry. Always clean your stencil immediately after every use. I applied multi-surface paint ‘Black Pearl’ on the clock dial using sponge and then rubbed a Little Birdie Metallic Wax -Silver Glitz to tone down the black colour. I painted the four sides of the clock base with multi-surface paint – Ivy Garden.
Finally, I pasted the decoupaged chipboard and clock dial using Little Birdie Wood Glue and fixed the clock hands.
I hope you find my project interesting and inspirational also.
