Today I wanted to make another Marbled Clock but with a different color combination.
So lets jump right into this project.
Materials Needed for this project
Multiple Paint Colors (I chose a mix of chalk paint, enamel finish and metallic paints)
Round Wood Piece (the one I used in this project is 18″)
Plastic Sheet (to protect the area)
Decide the colors for your Marbled clock.
In my case I wanted a combination of blue and red to be the prominent and with that I also added a bit of pink, gold and light purple.
Pour each color in separate cups, I find this to be the easiest way for me to marble easily.
Try to create an even consistency of all the paint colors so when it comes time to marble, everything blends well together. Add a little water and mix the paint then add more if needed.
This part is the most time consuming but its well worth it to make everything consistent.
This is my favorite part.
Start pouring the paint over your wooden piece. But before that please cover the surface area your are working on, trust me this project can get messy.
So one by one pour the paint.
You can always layer on more afterwards but try to incorporate all the colors.
This part makes me happy every single time since the marbling results are just gorgeous when the paints start blending.
Move the wooden piece around in all direction so to cover the entire surface and to get a good marbling effect.
If you want to make a color more prominent, go in and pour some more paint over and then move it around again so it blends as well.
Play around with it until you achieve the desired look.
This step is optional but I think it adds a nice little touch.
I added turquoise stones over my marbled piece.
I tried to mimic the marbling patten and placed the stones accordingly.
You could place it onto the paint while it is wet or even after it is dry, the only thing is you will need to use adhesive glue so the stones stay in place on the wooden surface.
After that give it about a day to completely dry.
When the paint is absolutely dry then you can proceed with Resin.
I use Envirotex Lite Resin on all my projects.
This comes with a hardener and Resin and you have to pour equal amounts of it in a cup. Follow the instruction that comes with it and you will be good to go. It is really simple and straightforward.
Pour the Resin on the entire wooden piece, covering the stones as well.
Try to spread it around evenly.
I also made a video for you guys to see the whole process.
Let it dry for about two days.
The last and final step is to attach the Wall Clock Mechanism.
The one I used, you simply hammer a nail in the center of the Marbled Resin Wood piece and hang the mechanism onto it.
And there you have it.
How stunning does this look?
Not only is this functional but looks like a gorgeous piece of Art on the Wall.
