If the bankroll of a clock is made of wood such as a wall, we can paint it by choosing the suitable color for pre-existing shades, or change it if we want to adapt it to other home furniture. A wooden structure, which is the wrapper of a clock, in this case goes before stripped down, then subsequently sanded, restored and finally covered with paints, which can be chosen between acrylic or water-based ones. These are definitely the best, as they are not harmful and most importantly they provide a natural color to the wood.

If the bankroll of a paint is natural or golden bronze, and in both cases occur without an appropriate patina, both because of the wear and tear that traces of oxide, you can restore it using paints. In this case, if we use acrylic ones after you apply with a spray can or a compressor before it dries completely, all sprinkled with talcum powder so practice with your hands a light abrasive action that removes unsightly porosity of this paint. The importance of using talc, is dictated also by the fact that serves to give more shine to the painted part. As an alternative to acrylic paints, there are some powder, gold, silver or bronze, with natural tones ranging diluted in a liquid solution, and applied with a rag instead of a brush. Even in this case, the use of talc as light abrasive, it is recommended to get the top from the perspective of the painting.

Finally, regarding the watches to China if we want to paint them properly, we can choose between the tempera paints or those in focus. The latter after application, we can make it adhere on the surface by placing them in the oven; in fact, it is a technique of painting, of the most appropriate to refine the porcelain of a clock. If, however, the decision is to apply the paint by hand and cold, then after the restoration, you can use the flatting to protect and give luster to the watch for a long time.
