Applique clock   Show and Tell

Started Apr-11 by Dee in TX (DBRADFOR3); 1071 views.

hmm, I wonder if just putting a bit of white paint on the tips would do it?  somehow when I look at it I feel like I need to squint.  Though the black contrasts with the white star in the center, somehow they blend in with the black zigzag outside.  I also am thinking the black background is too dark.  Or maybe it's just too busy.  I need to live with it for a while.

White tips on black hands sound like an excellent idea.

it's the little things - literally littlesmiley

Well, that was a simple fix, wasn't it?   Now to see if the clock still keeps reasonably accurate time ...

That works!

Oh Dee I really like that. You’re so talented!

Now that is stunning!

Thanks Linda. I like how it looks  but it is not all that easy to tell the time. All the black lines confuse my brain, I almost have to look for the arms. Oh well. Next version I will make it less busy.

How large is the Star?  That is really pretty.  How is the new home project going?

the star is about 9" I think, the canvas was 12" square.  The new home project is stalled for now, waiting on a well guy to drill some test holes.  If we can't get water to the site, then we aren't going to build.  We are continuing on the current house, which is nice finally getting some of the "forever projects" moving around here.
