Here is a quick movie showing it in action!
Now on with the instructions!
Materials needed -
- Some 'gmjboard' aka dense cardboard
- A large sheet of leather
- A pendulum clock mechanism
- Some PVA/wood/elmers glue
- Some white card
- Super glue
- double sided tape
- A 'metal weight'
Step 1: Choosing a shape.
Firstly i drew a few sketches, to finalize my idea.
Picture 1 - Tape a few sheets of paper together for a base, i created a rough square, and then worked ontop of that, i only needed to design one side.
Pictures 2 & 3 - After one side is complete, cut it out, and fold it over, you can then draw around one half, and cut out the full shape.
Picture 4 - Trace the shape onto some dense card
Picture 5 - Main shape cut out.
