Tutorial Thursdays - Time To Have Fun :)

Welcome back to Thursday fun on Marigolds' Loft.
Today I am going to show you how I created this clock.

So let's get started!

For this craft you will need:

make your own clock

A MDF Clock face
Serviettes with motif
A fitting clockwork
Gonis Basis Decor* (A white base paste that has a good cover)
Gonis Finisher* (A Water-resistant lack)
Gonis Dekopointers* (A decoration pen for the finishing touches)

* I am a distributor of Gonis Products and use them because I love their amazing quality. If you cannot find these products in your vicinity, you will have to substitute them, hence the descriptions in brackets.

How to make a MDF clock

1. Separate the two halves of the clock face.

2. On the back piece (the face) fill out the space with some Basis Decor*
I filled out only as much as I needed to so that the front piece would cover the remaining bare bit :)

3. Cut the serviette to cover the Basis Decor*. Remove the back layers of the serviette so that you are only working with the top layer.

4. Place the serviette on top of the wet Basis Decor* and smooth slightly.

5. Once dry, use the Finisher* to adhere the serviette to the MDF backing.

6. Once fully covered allow to dry completely.

7. Using the Basis Decor* cover the front piece of your clock face.

8. Cut out the serviette motifs that you would like to adorn the front of your clock with and remove their back layers. Place the motifs where they will be on the finished clock.

9. Using the Finisher* adhere the motifs to the MDF plate. Cover the entire piece. Allow to dry.

Glue the two MDF pieces together and decorate with Gonis Dekopointers*.
