Instructions:

  1. The prep for the metal is time consuming, but the metal must be prepped properly so the paint will not come off. Clean the black tin with vinegar and water, wipe dry with cheesecloth. Apply one thin coat of Paint Adhesion medium over the entire surface with a large brush. Clean brush immediately with soap and water. Allow to completely dry. Mix together equal parts of the basecoat color, Fawn, with the Paint Adhesion Medium. Basecoat the entire surface using a large 1″ brush. Allow this to completely dry. It will take longer because of the medium. Do not rush this step. Apply the basecoat color again. Allow to dry and apply two more time.
  1. Randomly drybrush Shimmering Silver, Rich Espresso, and Copper to the base and shade. This will completely cover the original Fawn base. Base 2/3 of a sheet of mixed media paper with Shimmering Silver and the other 1/3 with Royal Ruby.
  1. Place the text stamp onto acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it onto the surface. Reload and continue stamping the entire surface.
  1. Load the clock stamp onto a handle. Load with Lamp Black and stamp onto silver section of the paper twice with this stamp, reloading between impressions. Reload and stamp onto the shade three times, spacing it equally around the shade. Cut out the clocks then cut about 1/3 off the top of them and set to the side. Stamp the architectural stamp three times on the silver section. Stamp the Bird Gears once on the silver section and once on the ruby section. Cut out all images and set to the side.
  1. Stamp the Bird Gears onto two wide sections of the base with Lamp Black.
  2. In this order, glue the paper clock pieces to the narrow sides of the base, the architectural elements to the base and shade, gears and cogs overlapping some of the paper pieces, and finally the geared bird over one of the original impressions. Add the silver wing and eye to this bird.
