Clock from a railroad station

Materials: Bravur clock

Description: First unscrew all parts, burn off the paint from the outer ring of the clock, sandpaper some paint off from the face of the clock. Wet all parts of the clock (not the clock mechanism) spread salt and dirt on the clock and put them in a garbage bag. Let them be from two days to two weeks in a warm place(check once in a while). Take out and screw all parts together and there you have it, an old rusted railroad station clock.
