INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Disassemble clock. Set clockworks aside. (Note: This particular clock came apart fairly easily. Everything was snapped together.) Lay pieces out so you will know how to reassemble.
  2. Clean clock body with alcohol and dry well.
  3. Use 3/4" flat brush and Multi-Purpose Sealer to prime clock body.
  4. Use 3/4" flat brush and Grape Juice to paint the surface. Let dry, then coat with Purple Passion.
  5. Use 3/4 flat brush and Snow White to paint the clock face.
  6. Use marker to write numbers 1 through 13 around clock and spider web. (These do not need to be perfect.)
  7. Use brush handle end and Crystal Craft Twinkles Writer to dot spider web.
  8. When all pieces are dry, reassemble clock.
  9. Use scissors to cut chenille stems into small pieces for spider legs. Bend stems, position, and adhere on clock’s top knob with hot glue. Position and adhere wiggle eyes.

HELPFUL HINTS

When disassembling item with small parts, like clockworks, it is helpful to press parts on piece of masking tape in order they are removed. This will take hassle out of reassembling.
