Upcycling wall art: Urban wall clock



One of my first experiences DIYing was this kitchen wall clock... In the end it was  a bit of a failure, as I was not very happy with the end colours, but as it was harbour of my creativity and experimentation.... So I tried to overlook that. Until now. With a new slick very white kitchen, that clock was definitely hot the appropriate selection.

So I re-did it.... I applied a cover of black acrylic paint, and drew a few sketches of some monuments of my all time favourite city, Lisbon. Although I am not very happy with the final design, as my drawing skills definitely need some more practicing.....

Here is the summary of the process:



First, I sketched it with a white crayon, and only after I painted with white acrylic paint. The monuments are looking very naiff..... Since the clock is white on black, I might just add another coat of paint and re-draw the monuments.  For now it is fine....:



It's still a nice addition to the kitchen wall!
