So for this project I decided I wanted to try turning these round pieces of wood I got from a friend into clocks. And I wanted to try the beach scene with epoxy.

I have seen them everywhere on Pinterest, and I have done the ocean scene with my project, “ocean scene picture”. And I really thought they were cute.

Getting Started

So I got started with my pieces of round wood. I chose one that I thought would be the perfect size and I sanded it down.

Once it was sanded down, I started getting my epoxy ready for its part. I had to use 3 different colors for this scene. I used the midnight blue for the dark blue color. And then I got a lighter shade of blue for the color under it. Then of course white for the end of it. And I about forgot to mention the sand!

I decided to use real sand for the beach area. And why stop there? I decided that I would put a few seashells in there also. And it seemed to work out pretty well. I at least have had no issues with anything falling off of it! So that is good so far.

I just put the sand on the areas that I wanted the beach to appear to be, and then I added the epoxy on top of it. This was when I put in my little seashells. Making sure that they had plenty of epoxy on them. I then let it all cure until it was all the way hardened. You can tell by my picture above that I am a very messy person when it comes to working with epoxy!

So once the epoxy over the sand was cured, I then started putting the blues at the top. I started with the dark blue and then put my lighter blue directly underneath.

After I got my blues on there how I wanted them, I then got my white ready. I added thin streams of white. Then I took my heat gun and started pushing the white around. Giving them the appearance of being waves.

Once my waves were done I then started working on getting my clock parts inserted in it. I started off with getting my Dewalt impact driver drill out. And I used it to drill my hole for my clock pieces to fit through in the very center of my round wood piece.

And to be quite honest I just eyeballed where the middle was at and went with it. I know some people will do some precise things to be sure they are exactly in the middle, but I am more of a best guesser when it comes to that sort of stuff.

And there you have it! All done!

So I hope some of you out there will try this project out. It is a simple project that has so many different ways you could go about doing it. Change it up a little or try it just like I did. You will be happy with your results in the end. So good luck and happy projecting!

I am 47 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for over 7 years now. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I was first released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. So I have been back to school and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I was focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have changed my mind on that now and I have been focusing on doing affiliate sales and working on my website. These projects that I have been doing for the last 4-5 years is what has been literally saving my life! And keeping me off of the drugs! I am trying to bring about some awareness concerning addiction and what can happen to a person if they use needles with my website. Though I changed my mind on working as a counselor I still want to try and help others out there who are still struggling with their addictions. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
