1- old album no longer being used

2- epoxy resin

3- resin dyes

4- mixing cups

5- stir sticks

6- Clock kit with hands (check the centre hole on the album is the right size for the kits centre post, if not gently use a drill to make it the right size).

7- heat gun

8- blow torch

9- spirit level

10- Plastic sheet

Step 1: Getting your project ready.

1- Put your Album over a plastic sheet to catch any resin i used 3 plastic cups to lift it off the plastic.

2- Use the spirit level to make sure the album is level this will avoid you losing resin running off.

Even if I do like your creation, really, I'd like to know if that's possible with a transparent resin (it it exists!).

Yes could make it transparent just add less resin dye :-)
