Horloge Step 1

Paint the clock light blue. Let dry.

Horloge Step 2

Using a sponge, very lightly apply the pebble grey paint in different places in small dabs in order to obtain a cloud effect. Let dry. Enhance if needed using the Al fresco colour cotton flower

Horloge Step 3

Place a sticker over the location of the mechanism (centre hole). Using a compass and a black marker trace a circle 1 cm from the edge. Paint the 1cm border black. Let dry.Trace a second circle 1 cm from the first circle (2 cm from edge).

Horloge Step 4

Print and cut out the roman numerals. Using a ruler, trace 4 lines at the 4 cardinal numbers. Between each line, trace 2 lines at 6.66 cm intervals. Below each line glue the roman numerals with Bindex using a flat brush. Apply a layer of bindex to the small numbers and place them below the roman numerals. Positioning the numbers: Apply a thin layer of decoupage or Bindex on the face of the clock, and position the numbers over it. Bond the numbers to the surface by applying decoupage or Bindex over the complete surface using a charged brush. Apply the auxiliary from the inside towards the outside. Let dry.
