Five Past Midnight

I found a handmade clock at the thrift store, stripped of clockwork and generally boring.  I stripped it the rest of the way down, added scroll work, carved bat, and new details on the top. Refinished the face with a nice faux radium glow, and the woodwork with polished flat black paint.  I bought a new clockwork for it on ebay, and reversed the polarity of the pendulum in a copper sulfate bath until it looked interesting.
