Hello creative Peeps! Sumedha here. Today I am on the blog with a makeover of an old clock to a shabby chic tabletop clock with the newly launched Deco Transfer Sheets. Lets see the process of how I transformed it.
I had an old table clock and I wanted to transform it into a vibrant piece.
Before coloring the base I rubbed a candle on the rim of the clock at random places and gave 2 coats of chalk paint – Tattered lace and Sailing Sky with shaded effect on the rim. I kept the centre mostly in beige colour (Tattered Lace).
Now comes the fun part. I fussy cut elements from the Little Birdie Deco Transfer sheets. I have used images from 2 Deco Transfer sheets – Old world Charm for the centre and Lavender Blooms for the corners. Before transferring the designs to the surface I have placed them face up to make a composition. I have cut the images very close to the prints leaving very little margins
Once I was happy with the composition, I slowly placed each image upside down starting with the centre image after carefully removing the plastic film which covers the image.
This is an important step to be followed if you forget to remove it, the image will get transferred on the plastic film and not on your surface. Once I stuck the image on the surface (face down) I burnished it well with a bone folder to ensure its adhered properly to the surface. I took a brush and wet the entire image with water saturating enough but not over doing it.
Once the image was wet, I removed the white backing paper slowly. I followed the same step for each image that I transferred on the clock surface. I then varnished the entire surface with Decor Varnish Gloss. Once the varnish dried, I used a sandpaper to distress the chalk paint in places where I had rubbed the candle to give it a vintage look. I then stamped some diamonds shapes on the rim of the clock with Archival ink- Magical Voilet to go with my composition.
I used clay embellishment and gave it a light coat of sailing sky chalkpaint. I then used Little birdie flowers in White- Agnes and Elira, Voilet and purple from Birds and Berries Collection to adorn my clock
I then added a clock mechanism to it and the clock was fully transformed.
This is how my final project looks. It so easy peesy to transform any object with the newly launched Deco transfer sheeets and saves lot of time.
I hope you loved the project and will definitely give it a try .
Till next time- Much Love
