Well, Mr. Clock, you will get your wish.
The nice thing about this clock is how easy it is to disassemble. It's made of thin plastic, and most importantly, it's cheap! I figured now would be the best time to try my hand at steampunk, 'cause everyone else is!
Step 1: Materials and Tools
-2x "Rusch" Clock from IKEA (preferably with a clear casing). (approx. $6) (the second clock isn't mandatory, but it does help if you make any mistakes, etc.)
-Thin Cardboard (from soda boxes) ($3 on sale, drink the pop!)
-Paint (I'm using Enamel Paint) ($1-3 depending on colour)
-Thick Paper Leaves($0.50-$2, depending on colour/texture)
-Metallic Brads (or any other rivet substitute) ($5; got mine for $2.50 on sale; the more variety in sizes, the better)
If Installing LEDs:
-Colour Changing LEDs (5mm)
-2032 Button Cell Battery
-micro toggle switch
CAUTION: BE CAREFUL WHEN USING SHARP OBJECTS AND HIGH-SPEED TOOLS.
-Dremel/Rotary tool with various bits
-Sharpie or other writing utensil
-X-acto knife and/or Scalpel (Scalpel is better for precision cuts, only costs $4)
-Glue stick or spray adhesive
-Painting Tape (optional)
-Drill with bits
-Various Circular Objects *examples include a margarine container, and a pop bottle lid*
-Soldering Iron (Optional)
