You can start removing the old and boring material of your old clock. Or, if you’ve opted for a new simple one, this step will probably be done. You should remove the watch face, the minute hand y the second hand. You need to take off any obstacle on the clock in order to obtain perfect results.

When the clock is clean, you can use the silver ink to paint the exterior part of the clock, which will be its base. This step is much easier if you use a sponge that allows you to perfectly cover the whole base.

Now, it’s time to place a piece of paper (or carton if possible). You’ll need to glue the adhesive fabric to the piece of paper or carton, which should have the same size that the clock. Depending on the size, you’ll need a scissors for getting the ideal size.

The silicone gun will help you glue the adhesive fabric and the carton to the base you painted in the first place. For a better performance of the silicone, try to place a heavy object on it while it’s drying. Leave it dry from at least 30 minutes and you’ll be able to keep working on your vintage clock.

Then, it’s time to place the elements of the clock, which we took off before decorating it, back to their place in the new design. You can use the scissors to introduce the hands back into the holes. Make sure that it’s well attached and it’ll be ready to work!
