The Clock Side ..... Maps, Stamps and Hands

For the clock side, I'm using an old circular map of the Malaya/Indonesia area ….. keeping it yellow like faded paper. Then for the '12' (which is only to orient the dial) I have modified an old Indonesian Tapir stamp so that the value reads 12. Lastly I have laminated the skinny hands with dark paper … fatteneing them up a bit so that they really stand out against the brown paper background. The last remaining challenge is to package these clocks so that I can put them together, transport them, stack them, without damaging the hands …. waiting for inspiration … still waiting …. still waiting …..

  1. Chris, could you turn them inside-out, pad out the space around the clock face, and do the same for the internals? Then stick it all in a slightly larger box.
