Description: The Rusch wall clock is so cheap that it’s practically begging for creative modifications.
In this case I spray-painted the body black and covered the face with a design I printed out and colored with gold ink. I replaced the hands with interesting shapes cut out of paper card stock and covered with gold gift wrap paper. The gold looks better in reality than on the pictures.
I found that the noise of the Rusch wall clock can often be greatly reduced by spraying the wheels with lubricant (I use silicon spray) and putting a few drops of heavy mineral oil into the well of the little wheel that drives the whole mechanism.
