Finished work on the Miss Lydia Pickett Cottage Clock in 1:12 scale by Robin Betterley's Miniatures. Using Mora clocks as my inspiration, I made a lot of changes to this kit and love the way it turned out. I removed the upper scrollwork and used a Houseworks finial instead. I made a recessed face with new artwork and tiny brass hands. I drilled winding holes as accents, lining them with a bit of paint.
There's an added 3/16" hinge and nail serving as a knob. I dabbed these with Taupe Metallic by Folk Art to match the other detailing. Since the hinges don't function, the paint won't matter. Now it looks like you can open the glass to wind the clock.
I added a small keyhole from a Classics door knob set and fashioned a key from a laser cut brass hook from The Ironworks. This is one of my favorite details.
The artwork for the body and base is from The Graphics Fairy. I used the image as is for the base but then used elements from the original to create a design for the body in PhotoShop. I painted the clock Greenscape by Folk Art and finished with Delta Ceramcoat Satin Varnish. The clock face trims and the finial are Taupe Metallic by Folk Art. I painted some accents in the same color on the body and base.
Here is the final blog post, and you can follow the steps back from there.
