Make your own Clock with Clock Mechanism and Silk Clay
The clock mechanism is covered with Silk Clay. Subsequently a figure and a stand is modelled around the clock mechanism, ensuring that the clock can stand independently. We have chosen extra small hands for the teapot.
How to do it
Model Silk Clay around the front of the clock mechanism. Please take care not to cover the opening for the battery compartment. Leave approx. 1 cm of the shaft uncovered as the clock hands will have to be attached to the shaft later on.
Model a Silk Clay figure around the clock mechanism. Make Silk Clay numbers for attaching onto the figure and leave to dry for 24 hours lying down on a plastic pocket or a similar transparent surface.
Attach the clock hands by attaching the flat metal disc first, then a screw and then finally click on the clock hands. You may shorten the clock hands with a pair of scissors if they are too long.
Attach the figure onto its Silk Clay stand. Place the figure vertically against a support so that it can stand independently when dry. Insert an AA battery in the clock mechanism and let time pass.
