Some clocks I painted, some I used pretty paper on them and then started experimenting with chemicals.
Hubby made some incredible clocks with rusting solutions and patinas. We sold some that he used gold flake paint on top of the rust. Gorgeous.
The reason I bring clocks up today is that half of the clocks are not working! Need batteries, and it's so frustrating to walk through all these rooms and never know what time it is!
