Miniature clock

I'm currently working on a commissioned miniature for a friend and this is a sneak peek of part of it.
A miniature clock.

It started out like this; a little diagram showing how many pieces the clock would be made of and the size of them.
Then I measured and cut out the cardboard pieces and labelled them corresponding to the diagram.
When working on this scale it's easy to loose bits so I like to be organised.

I used PVA glue to stick all the components together.

Then I painted the clock and added the details like the clock face which I bordered with a jump ring, and the handle and feet which I made out of wire.

It's so tiny!
