I've always loved that movie ever since I was a kid, so much so that when I was a student, studying computer animation and games development, I created a game inspired by the movie. A screenshot from the game is shown above. That's more years ago than I care to think about, so this steampunk stuff has been a favourite of mine for a loooong time! :)
I inserted large silver brads into the smaller circle, to act as rivets marking the hour positions and then fixed the smaller circle to the larger one. I used distress stains in a range of colours to age the copper a little. I cut a circle of thick clear plastic from some packaging and stuck it behind the circles to be the glass in the clock. The clock face was stamped and mounted behind the glass using black 3d foam, and the hands were held in place with a brad.
I painted the metal square with Claudine Hellmuth black paint and let it dry, then buffed it with a dry paper towel to reveal the silver of the metal in the raised areas. I stuck the clock onto the square and then stuck that onto a larger square covered in plain copper. That was then stuck to a square of Tim Holtz's Kraft Resist paper and then onto a square of chipboard covered in black card.
Finally, I stuck the "82" plaquette to the hanger, and a couple of cogs and brads onto the hanger's clips. That, as they say, was that! :)
