All of the wood up front is ash.
Same picture I used on the other two clocks I showed yesterday only the top half of this clock is of the picture. Also this clock is the third different size of the same picture.The bottom half I added my own rendition. I made the pendulum with 1/8” Baltic Birch so it would not be so heavy. The diamonds are from Hobby Lobby.
There are four places on the clock where there are diamonds. That’s the reason I call this clock , Lucy in the sky with fake diamonds. There about six different colors on the carving. These are metallic powders I get at Hobby Lobby I coat with spray lacquer between each application. The metallic colors are applied with one finger. Then while the lacquer is still wet I sprinkle glitter for that wow look. Too bad all this glitter does not show good in pictures.
If anyone wants total instructions from saving a picture from the internet to enlarging picture to size of actual clock to printing out pictures used to glue onto wood and preparing wood, let me know what you need, exact blades I used?
