Ginger on Zuzu's forum - kindly sent me a Watchmakers Tin to alter or decorate for a swap.
Here is my effort which has been sent to Seona
I was actually rather proud of it - my first ever attempt and it took me hours over a few days to do waiting for each layer to dry.
I used vintage watch parts which I bought off the internet and layered them in clear glues, glass paints and fine glitter - it looks lovely in the sunlight. It took me so many attempts to fit on the clock hands and get them to stay there - I almost gave up!
This is the reverse of the lid - which looks better in real life - and I have cleaned up the rim.
This is the inside bottom of the tin - with purple glass paints and fine glitters
Finished off with purple ribbon.
The tins were donated by Katy - for which we thank you.
