If you're a fan of Doctor Who, then you probably remember when The Doctor pulled out a piece of the TARDIS from the crack in the wall. After being bored on the internet and stumbling upon this necklace on etsy, I thought "hey, that looks simple, I bet I could make one!" And I did. And so I shall share the wisdom I have gained from many travels across time and space from the making of this necklace, and perhaps you to shall make one, as an awesome fashion piece or fandom statement. And without further ado, let's get started!
Step 1: Materials
For this you will need:
• wood (about 3mm thick)
• blue paint (I used acrylic)
• white paint (I used acrylic)
• black paint (again, I used acrylic)
• hacksaw/jeweler saw or scroll saw
• clear coat (optional)
• small paint brush
• knife or razor blade
Step 2: Sketching Out A Design
As seen in the first picture, I drew on the wood a shape similar to the etsy necklace. Just use a pencil and draw on a shape that resembles the TARDIS fragment. Once you're happy with the look of your "time" piece (ha-ha!) cut it out.
Step 3: Cleaning Up
After you cut it out, you may want to fine tune your TARDIS fragment. Grab some rough sand paper (I used 80 grit) and clean it up and make it look more like how it does in the photos.
Step 4: Detailing
Now comes the time to detail it! As you probably noticed, you could see to little Notches in the necklace that was supposed to be like a frame for the sign. Cut these out (refer to the pictures). Once you're done, rough them up with the sand paper.
