Clock made of Foam

My collage wall has been sitting with blank frames for um….years! haha. I’ve had 3 empty ones sitting on this wall…and even in the house before me and for some reason never got any pictures in them. So I finally decided that because we didn’t have a clock in the room (other than the ones the kids keep stealing from my decor!) I would make myself one to go up in place of some of the empty frames!

sanding foam

I started with a 12×12 block that I spread with Smooth Finish on the top and down the sides. Once the first coat dries I put another coat and let it dry. Once it dried overnight I sanded down any uneven bumps. Then I laid out some painters tape into the pattern I wanted, and then painted sections of the block.

Once the paint was dry I traced the clock mechanism to the back center of the block because the block was a little too thick for my mechanism. I then used the Tuck and Scribe tool to push some of the foam down where the clock mechanism will sit, eliminating 6 millimeters from the depth then put the clock mechanism in place

Once you put the hands on the clock, it will hold the mechanism in place and the clock is done!!!! The mechanism I bought has a place to hang it on the wall, making the installation easy!! I love how it turned out and it looks great in my collage wall!
