My Copper Clock

So love my new clock, the BG was pounded with a texture hammer and then we used a Brûlée torch to bring out colours. The enamelled pieces were done over a high powered flame, which caused me a few nervous thoughts, but once I got started was OK. The enamelled pieces were mounted over opal covered cardboard shapes, the square was painted and then misted, can't remember with what, the CD was painted with gesso and then copper leaf pressed on, beads added later. Should have had etched numbers but unfortunately mine didn't take so I used die cut numbers.
