23rd May 2020: Many layers of glue later it’s got a smooth plastic finish and is ready to paint.
The wrist straps are transparent flexible rods.
26th April 2020: Sanded half pipe channels into the inner pieces for the wrist straps to pass through. Then glued the layers together before sanding to shape as one piece.
The digital display dial is electric blue paint on acetate.
2nd April 2020: Started on the watch by printing off a picture to get an idea of proportions and making a pattern based on that.
Plan is to layer up EVA foam and sand it down to shape. By using layers I can sandwich the 3 tubes into the design rather than trying to drill through a finished piece.
23rd March 2020: Painted Sleeves Made a first pass with the stencil using Dylon fabric paint in purple. Once that was dry I did a second coat to even out the colour using a small brush.
This paint can be heat set with an iron, then it's washable.
22nd March 2020: Pattern Stencil Used baking paper to sketch out a design that would fit to the sleeves. Once I was happy with the proportions I flipped it over and traced on the other side to transfer the design onto stiff card for the stencil.
29th January 2014: Dress Pattern The jumper dress is based on New Look 6179 - a raglan sleeve top extended to dress length. This way I can avoid having lots of seams visible and use a soft stretch jersey.
