In this nice guide, we decided to offer you, we want to teach you how and what to do to create a beautiful and original, wall clock, with the help of a simple vinyl record. We will try to make everything as simple and easy as possible, so that this idea could be undertaken by those who have little skill but really want to do and create. If you search through the memories of grandmothers ‘ cellars, definitely we will bump into old CDs, vinyls, not always supported: maybe because we don’t have a functioning player, or because it scratched. If Dispose is not one of your project, here is an alternative project to recycle them artfully and obtain a new object to your home
decor. By following these few simple steps, you will learn how to be really fast make a wall clock with a vinyl record, to get a vintage watch with an imaginative design. If your discs were all in perfect condition, you might get one, even scratched, cheaply at a flea market or with web searches.
Let’s just be done and let’s get to work!
Good job and good luck to all of you!
Be sure to have on hand:
- vinyl record
- battery mechanism
- Acrylic colors
First select the vinyl for you. Pick one that has all the way round intact. That’s a 33 round or a 45 rpm, it doesn’t matter. The only difference will be the ultimate impact of major incision on 45 rpm allows to obtain, given the size much bigger and showy compared to a 33 RPM.
After choosing the support (which is the disk) it’s time to get your battery mechanism, with the hands. Choose a black background; you could pick one with classical or hands hands details at your convenience. You might also add the works of an old cog of a clock whose mechanism is broken but the hands have a certain charm. If you are good with manual labor, you might choose to replace the simple hands with filiform objects like pencils or small brushes.
Separate the black case from the body and hands. Now that every part is well insulated, placed in the middle of your vinyl. Assemble, back, chest and hands and you’ve got your new Watch. Finish by inserting the batteries into the mechanism and simply run. If your clock does not satisfy you, you might decide to decorate it, adding patterned 70s decorations with acrylic paints; or pasting images that you like, style collage. Set back a hook and choose where to expose your creation, possibly on a wall as well. Now you have personalized a wall clock like those on PhoenixWallClocks.com.
The great thing about this project is that it can also be realized with a common CD; the transformation process will be identical to the transformation process mentioned in the steps above, to defer will simply aesthetic effect. If you use a CD you might decide to maintain the natural mirror.
