Oogling Bacon Clock!




Introduction: Oogling Bacon Clock!

Hey there all bacon lovers!

A clock is something we look at on average 70 times a day, so why not make it special, by adding a little bacon to it!

Step 1: Materials

The key thing here is the clockwork mechanics. This might be hard to get by as we need special 3 axis clockwork mechanics.
-Tough and soft cardboard
-Masking tape
-Strong Tape (Duct Tape or Carpet Tape)
-Metallic Paint
-Blue (Or other) Card

Step 2: Making the Clock Face

Cut up an uneven piece of cardboard and poke holes through it, to allow the clock axis to poke through. 
Paint the cardboard square with metallic paint, I chose gold! 
When dry assemble the clockface through the cardboard.
Add the print of a bacon onto the end of the second hand!

Note: Painting numbers is optional, I didn't as I felt it would interfere with the art of the clock.

Step 3: The Background

I went for a simple blue background which I attached to a strong cardboard backing, but this step is open to variations.

Step 4: Final Assembly

Attach the clock face to the background and optionally add a sign, that in my case reads, Its Bacon Time!

    The only problem is that bacon time should be all the time. Great job!
