CUCKOO CLOCK - Colour Theme - Tando Creative

Hello all!!!! Today I'm blogging my Tando cuckoo clock I have made for this weeks challenge theme at Tando Creative.

The colour palette for September is a gorgeous variety of one of my fav colours.... Purple!!! I just love any shade of purple!!!

This is the colour palette I had to work with.

For this week, I decided to work with Tando's Cuckoo Clock. I really like working with anything that can be displayed and used rather than spending hours creating something then sticking it in a drawer!

I enjoyed every step of creating this clock and I think I will be creating another one in the future. 

So here goes....

First, I put together all the layers of the Tando cuckoo clock then painted it with a quick coat of white Gesso.
I made templates for the windows and clock face and stamped and coloured them with Distress Ink and painted the rest of the clock with acrylic paint.

I used the Tando stripes mask for the roof area to give it some texture.

Then, I painted the numbers and clock hands with black Gesso and randomly went over the top with gilding flakes.

I added a metal owl embellishment and metal wings to the top  of the clock to act as the cuckoo.

To finish, I added some clear glaze over the widows to make them glossy and added some plaited jute string for the winding chains. 

Here are all the products I used to make this creation...
