NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. The round circle plaque I am using has a white base, but you can use a plain wooden base because you will be covering up the entire of the base with paint.

  1. Use a ruler and pencil to divide and mark inside the base of the plaque into equal quarters.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use any 6" diameter object like a lid to trace around, making a smaller circle in the center of the plaque.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use painter's tape to mask off one section of the plaque at a time.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint the outside area Moody Blue and the center area Shoreline. Remove the tape and reposition it for a second section.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint the outside area of the second section Eucalyptus Leaf and the center area Green Lagoon. Remove and reposition the tape for a third and then a fourth section.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Repeat the steps for the third section with Cobblestone and Bleached Sand and for the fourth section with Jadeite Glass and Pistachio Mint.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Paint the outer rim and clock hands Snow White. Seal with varnish of your choice. Let dry. When dry, drill the center hole and assemble the clockworks.
