Time on CD

My studio has been needing a clock for a while now but instead of buying one, I made one.

Here my first effort, fairly plain because I didn't know what I was doing. I altered a used CD to make the clock face by painting it first with gesso and then with a few colors of paint.  I used rub on numbers for the 4 major time increments and dashes for the others. Then added the clock mechanism which I bought at the craft store for $6.99.  I did beef up the back of the CD with glued on chipboard but it was probably unnecessary.  Next time I would leave it off.
