Mosaic Clock from paint chip samples!

Hi everyone, I recently found a nice old clock face with battery in back, but it had the worse looking fruit painted on it. I decided to paint over the fruit and do a paint chip sample mosaic on the clock.

You have seen all the pretty colors of paint samples at the DIY stores and I can never resist grabbing a handful of them!

I cut them randomly one at a time and glue down with a tacky white glue that dries clear. On this project, I first painted the clock a nice cream color, then started a random mosaic....no particular subject matter. I coat the finished design with a clear acrylic coating for protection.

Here is the finished clock and I plan to sell it in my antique (and other interesting things) booth.
