I knew I had to make one for my dad. I went to the DI and bought a clock with all the fixings for $5
I took it apart, making sure to pay attention to how it goes back together. Then painted it (which would have taken an hour total instead of 3 days if I had spray paint…), and decided to try this method of using parchment paper to transfer inkjet printed writing/pictures. Yeah, that didn’t work for me so well.
You can see the the 1728 worked the best, because I tried rubbing alcohol, but it made it bleed too. So I used the transfer marks as guides, and went through and drew it all in with a Sharpie.
My dad started laughing as soon as he saw it, then sat there and figured out all the equations and what-nots. So I guess it was a success! If you have someone geeky you want to make one for, I can email you the PDF for all the equations. That took the longest for me, since I did it all in Photoshop to make sure I got the look I wanted. Just let me know!
