This clock came to me by way of a friend...It is made out of bamboo and was brown and distressed when it arrived, along with some nicks and bangs!! I painted it with a base coat of
black acrylic paint...and then went to town with layers of metallic...blue, purple, green, red, copper, bronze and gold...I ripped an oriental paper and altered it on all the curved moldings..
and then went over it with a bronze wash...I placed ribbon around all the string that holds the bamboo together. It reminds me of a pagoda now...It has been sealed several times, first with a matte finish and then with a gloss finish....I decided on the tassels just to give it a punch...
