Wings & Heart Altered Clock

Wings & Heart Altered Clock

This mixed media altered clock started with a thrift store vintage clock.  Inside the clock are layers of gears, with a flaming heart as the focal point.  I textured and painted the metal clock’s outer frame with paints from Finnabair’s Prima line. Then I glued on an assortment of embellishments (gears, wings, flowers, etc.). With the clock being so deep, I made layers to bring the centre piece forward. I created depth with layers of the gears using jumbo foam dots. The focal point is a flaming heart painted red and purple with Finnabair waxes, and highlighted with metallic paint.
