Halloween Moon Face Clock

Lesley is teaching a Halloween Altered Clock workshop on our yahoo group, link is above, and this is what I created. It's a small table clock that is silver plated and has a wonderful natural aged patina. After taking the clock apart, there really wasn't any surface that could be altered other the clock face. So, I used PhotoShop Elements to alter and enhance this moon face that I cropped from a vintage postcard. Darkened the colors and contrast. Printed it on photo paper and using a white gel pen, colored in the teeth and added the highlights. The hands are broken, they only hang down, but I will take this apart again and glue the hands where I want them to be for all eternity.

Mary-Thanks! I wish he actually worked, but I'll just have to be content to have him sit on a shelf. He can remind me that in my studio, time does not exist. :-D
