atomic eggbeater clock with saturated color

    Newer Older

    I've always liked atomic-era clocks but have never been able to afford them (either vintage or reproduction).

    I made this similar-looking clock using eggbeaters that were collecting dust at my local thrift store. The center is made from a cheese board, minus the glass dome that usually comes with them.

    A full tutorial for this project originally appeared in The Satellite magazine. Now I offer these clocks for sale in my Etsy shop. Check my Flickr profile for the link.

    Update: This clock was a winner in the Craft and Hobby Association's Indie Craft Contest and was featured at the 2009 CHA Winter Show.

    The concept and images for this project are under my copyright. You may make the project for your own personal use but may not reproduce it to sell online or at craft fairs. If you wish to feature this project on your blog, please contact me for permission. Thanks!

      Thanks everyone! It's the same clock pictured below, but I used Picnik to give the clock more pop.

      curlydervish and mags12982: Sorry, I no longer have the tutorial posted, though I'm guessing you could figure out the how-to steps if you're crafty and willing to just give it a try. I also have clocks available for sale in my Etsy shop ( Thanks for your interest!

      I love this and pinned it from your original post here. Is that ok, or would you prefer I remove it?
