Hi All, I am new to this site and this is my first post. Just wanted to share with readers here, a clock I made from POPSICLE STICKS glued together, built in the style of an English Georgian bell-top bracket clock. The movement is a spring-wind E. Ingraham striking movement made in the late 1800's (latest patent date is 1868). I also painted the dial myself using acrylic paints on sheet steel primed with Krylon flat white. Check out my article for full story (9 pages long with many photos): http://www.alvenh.com/misc-projects/clock/ My favorite part of the project was painting the dial (described on page 8).
