    • paper towels
    • small craft paintbrush
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • wallpaper roller
    • glass clock
    • scrapbook paper of solar system
    • gold leaf gilding
    • small sponge brush with pointed end
    • flat razor blade
    • AA battery
    • glass cleaner


    1. Clean off the glass clock with the glass cleaner. Dry.
    2. Cut out the scrapbook paper, leaving an area roughly 1/2” larger than the clock.
    3. Using a 3/4" flat brush, apply liberal amounts of Americana Matte Decou-Page to the clock face. Apply the scrapbook paper to the decoupaged side of clock, with design side facing downward.
    4. Smooth out all air bubbles and excess Decou-Page, using either fingers or a tool of choice. (I used an old wallpaper applicator.) Allow to dry completely.
    5. Take a sharp flat razor blade and, while holding the glass, trim off the excess paper around the glass clock.
    6. With a small sponge brush, apply the gold leaf around the clock to give it a finished look.
    7. Follow the instructions from the clock manufacturer to install the clock mechanism.
    8. Put in battery.
