So why clocks? Much like Hatters, Clock making also had its dangers. Pocket watches of the era would have the numbers on their faces painted with Radium (to make the numbers glow). Often times the smaller and finer the numbers were painted, a higher price could be yielded for the watch. In order to get a fine point on a paint brush, clock painters would lick the brush with their mouths into a point. With time the small doses of Radium would do enough damage.
While I did not obtain Radium Poisoning on the job, I did have to create a giant pocket watch for the White Rabbit. As for being 'mad', well haha..."we're all a little mad, aren't we?"
I formulated an Idea for the large clock using cardboard. As you can see in the photo above I started out with a few pieces of Card board. I used a round dinner plate to trace my two circles. I them cut enough card board in 1" widths to circle the circumference of the clock.
(Nearly completed dials)
(Ta-da! And YES the dial is supposed to be crooked!)I then spray painted the body of the clock gold, let dry then glued on a clock face to either side. For a "Chain" I used an old gold curtain pull tied at the top of the clock inner support. I love the tassel!
And thats about all the cool stuff I did for Disney's "Alice In Wonderland Jr."
