Old School Ceramics: Dry-Brushed Clock

dry brushed clock

Saturday, I dry-brushed the clock that I had previously antiqued. It's not turning out that great - up close, you can definitely tell that it's not that great. But... I'm soldiering on and hoping that it looks better as I get it more finished.

First, I dry-brushed the clock face in a color called Buff, then dry brushed Ivory Cream over it.

I dry-brushed a color called Gingerbread over the rest of the clock, then highlighted the edges with a color called Toast and then on top of that, more Buff. I realized that the highlighting helped make it look a little more realistic, so I ended up highlighting more of the clock.

The scrolly parts and the numbers will be done in gold... hopefully it will all look ok! From far away, it's not bad... but... up close...that's another story!

  1. Well, if it's any consolation, it looks great in pictures! I love that you're doing these ceramics. It makes my heart proud.

  2. Art isn't supposed to be looked at close up anyway! It looks great in the picture!

  3. I think it's going to be great Jamie! Just have fun with it. :)

  4. I think it cool, Jamie. I'm sure, like any other craft, it takes time to perfect certain methods. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.
