Melting “Salvador Dali Inspired” Clock – Artist Series

Designer: Marcia Roullard




  1. Roll out clay on a canvas surface, 1/4 to 3/8″ thick, with a rolling pin.
  2. Find a circle shape or use a string to cut out a circular shape.
  3. Let the clay firm up but still able to manipulate. Drape the circle shape over the edge of a table, turn up some of the edges so it is misshapen. Let dry.
  4. Clean and fire to 04.


  1. Pencil a line around the outer edge, approximately 3/4″. Use CB-604 #4 Soft Fan to brush 2-3 coats of SC-97 Cant-elope.
  2. On a palette, thin SC-11 Blue Yonder, so it will apply smoothly, apply 2-3 coats to the remainder of the clock. Let dry.
  3. Pencil in the letters and the hands of the clock. Brush the letter with SG-401 Designer Liner Black and one coat or SC-15 Tuxedo, use CB-110 #10/0 Mini Liner.
  4. Use a ruler to get the hands on straight, if desired use SG-401 Designer Liner Black.
  5. Apply 2 coats of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing with CB-604 #4 Soft Fan.
  6. Fire to cone 05/06.
