I'm still easing back into a regular blogging schedule over here (translation: being lazy) but here's at least one thing I got done today:
I finally took pictures of my favorite antique watch faces!
These pocket watch guts were a gift from my Dad last year, but I've been hesitant to do anything permanent with them just because I love the porcelain faces so much. Then it occurred to me that I could probably do some neat things with printed copies of them.
These are perfect for you fellow crafters, steampunks, and steampunk crafters: all you have to do is print them out at the size of your choice, and then either coat them with a bit of epoxy or add a piece of clear plastic on top. Instant faux watch face! You can layer clock hand charms on top, use them for scrapbooking, set them in lockets, decoupage them over boxes, or even use them for functioning clock faces. Really, the sky's the limit.
All I ask is that you only use these for personal use, and that you credit/link back to Epbot when applicable. Oh, and send me pictures if you make something cool with them. ;)
Thanks, guys, and enjoy!
