The black “Penrith” clock, on the “newsroom clocks” wall, hasn’t been looking its best against an indigo background. You may recall, I superglued a green satin rim to the perimeter last week, but it simply wasn’t enough to lift the clock from the rich denseness that is the indigo material on the walls. I resisted the urge to add tinsel, petals or a sunburst, because I really liked the simplicity of a “newsroom”. So… now the black clock is also colour-matched to the doors. PVA glue and “Martian green” fake turf (made for decorating the scenery of a model railway), created an effect which is more luxurious and professional than if I’d attempted to paint straight onto the plastic rim.
