Pink & White Acrylic Clock

Something I've been wanting to make for my new studio since I moved in was a clock. I'd seen some really cool clocks made with a laser and knew I wanted to try my hand at one. I have to say...I'm so excited with how it turned out!!!

At first I was just going to have a pink face with the numbers cut out and white acrylic behind the numbers. But once I started putting the pieces together, it looked kind of boring.

In the process of cutting out the white ring to put behind the numbers, this left me with another white circle cutout. I played around with it for a little while trying to decide if I liked it on top of the pink clock face. Then the idea came to me to cut out a pretty design!

In the end, I didn't even use the white ring to put behind the numbers, I liked the cutout look. But that step led me to the white center of my clock which I think really finishes the clock of nicely!

 This is something I do hope to eventually add to my shop. I have a few other colors of acrylic on hand, but would like to add a nice variety of options. And I need to find a good source for clock hands as well. I would like to offer a variety of these as well, like black, gold and silver.

What do you think?
