First the front got a layer of PaperArtsy Grunge Paste and while still wet, a bark pattern was drawn in to it. The rest of the pieces were painted with a layer of gesso.
The inside faces and clock dial were painted with a layer of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish yellow submarine and the remaining outer faces with eggplant. The textured front was painted first in a layer of chocolate pudding, right down in to the grooves. The ridges were then highlighted with lilac and when dry, a layer of eggplant was added. Eggplant is a translucent colour so the lilac could show through giving highlights and some of the brown was left showing in the grooves.
Using autumn fire with a fairly dry brush, the edges of the yellow faces were given a distressed look.
