I cannot share the actual process described by Tim in his book, it wouldn't be fair after all his work on the book, you do need your own copy & I promise you won't regret it.
But I can show you some of the process below.

This the bare clock, I painted it over in cream acrylic paint first.

Above photo is the shape cut out In metal and decorated as per Tim's tutorial in the book.
 Below photo is me layering up pieces to go on, lots of changes, finished clock is a little different, but this just shows the process. Then painted over in places with cream acrylic. Spritzed with various
Inks , dabbed with paints . Silver rub on , adhesive stones, metal embellishments & buttons
All added to the mix ! And a few time related chit chats added.

The flowers & cogs  are cut with Tim's  dies
Flowers are cut from metal too.


  1. How cool is this metal heart clock?!!! Love the embossing you did! What a beauty! Thank you so much for joining us in our metalicious challenge at CC3Challenge!!!

  2. What a grand clock Janna, love all those little extra details you added, great technique... Thanks for playing along with the CC3 Challenge x

  3. Janna...this wooden clock that you've completely transformed into this painted industrial metallic beauty is awesome! Love your idea and how you've carried it out. The panels of this clock look so cool. From the photos, they look debossed rather than embossed and I think that looks totally amazing! Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
