Final Fantasy Wall Clock

Picture of Final Fantasy Wall Clock
You're a Final Fantasy fan, aren't you? So what are you doing with a boring standard wall clock hanging on there?

Although this isn't an original idea of mine (I've already seen similar clocks on the internet) I've decided to create this tutorial because I haven't seen it yet in this website, is something very easy to create and I'd like to make it even easier to you all! So let's begin.

Also, I have to say that this instructable is dedicated to San. She deserves all this work and many more!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
For this instructable, you will need:

- A wall clock wich can be unmounted. The cheap standard ones works perfectly.
- Scissors
- Cutting knife
- Glue
- Screwdiver
- Ruler
- Computer with some kind of image software (photoshop, gimp, corel draw...)

Step 2: Unmounting the clock

First of all, you have to disassemble the whole clock. Maybe yours is different from the one shown here, but many of the wall clocks you can find are very similar to unmount. Try to remove the backside first, by unscrewing the screws if it has them. Be sure how it has to be done in your clock, try not to break it by forcing it. Almost all the clocks are made to be easy to dismount.

Step 3: Measuring the face

Use a ruler to measure the diameter of your clock. It will be very important for making the design fit. It's a good idea measuring also the diameter of the center hole, so you can see how will it look the design when finished with more accuracy.
I've seen these on the internet too, this one turned out great! have you built any other clocks?

Yes, but this one is the first I've decided to take pics of the whole process. Most of the clocks I've modified were given as gifts to family or friends, and they've always loved them.

I even replaced the face of an old wristwatch. More difficult to dismount (small pieces) but done the same way!
