When I asked my friend, Judi Kauffman, to choose some new Walnut Hollow products and create some designs for us, I never thought she would get this funky. However, Judi is such a creative talent, I wasn’t at all surprised! Well, maybe I was a little surprised when I opened the box full of wonderful projects and saw graffiti!!!, but I loved the two clocks Judi made using our new Square Modern Clock. Of course, being from California, I grew up with graffiti as it could be seen on the freeways and thoughout several parts of my hometown. Living now in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, I don’t think we have any graffiti in our little town.
So, here’s what Judi started with – times two…
And, ta da, this is her incredible graffiti artwork… and the clocks actually tell time!

About Krink Paint Markers, Judi says. “They are fabulous, totally opaque colors and were fun to use…”
TIP: Substitute any brand of paint pen that gives opaque color, or use acrylic paint and a brush if you prefer!
