    Step 2

    I am using plastic plate to make this clock as I don’t have a wood drill bit to make it using wood plaque or so. Don’t worry I have that in my wish list as I love wood work. Anyways you can totally recreate this with wood just be careful with the size of the hole so that you are able to insert your clock movement.
    One spray can is more than enough to coat the plate thrice keeping 10 minutes of intervals in between for best results. Actually this is the first time I have been so patient while spray painting and I have done a good job so far compared to my previous attempts.
    Now that I let the paint dry I went ahead to my kitchen and with the help of pliers I held the nail over the stove to warm it up and use it to drill a hole in the center of the plate. I used three nails subsequently to get the perfect size. So you need to keep checking with your clock movement for the ultimate fit.

    Then I gilded the clock hands copper. And while I left them aside to dry, I measured and cut out two strips of mounting tape to be attached to the opposite sides of the clock setting to the plate.

    Then I moved forward to cut off pom pom carefully from their bunch and glued them down them first on the 3,6,9 & 12 postings by situating the clock hands to the opposite sides to be accurate. And the rest was done following that sequence.
