"TIME FOR MARTINIS" HAPPY HOUR RECORD ALBUM CLOCK



This is a clock I created from an old record album, a cd, and some used bottle caps.

Using decorative paper, I punched out olives and parts of martini glasses to fit into the used bottle caps.

For the 12 o'clock hour, I used the word TIME in a bottle cap.

Once glued in place, I poured Judikins Diamond Glaze into the caps and set aside to let dry.

When the caps had dried, I used E6000 to attach the caps to the record album to use as the clock numbers for my clock.

I purchased a clock mechanism kit that fit just PERFECTLY through the holes of the cd and record album!

I applied alcohol inks to the cd and used Stazon ink to stamp a martini glasses.

I then centered the hole of the cd over the hole of the record album and glued the cd down with E6000.

Love what you've done with the almost extinct LP! So creative and something useful too! This brings to mind a song that says: it's five o'clock somewhere (time for a drink :)
