This elegant mantel clock was designed exclusively for Vectric Aspire users with an American 18th century neoclassical style in mind to adorn your mantlepiece, a side table or shelf. The interleaved flourish reliefs were derived from the Vectric clipart models included with Aspire 8. The tools in Aspire made it easy to slice-and-dice the existing models to create custom versions suitable for the clock. Sculpting, smoothing, tilts and fades allowed for blending and merging the components nicely.
The traditional coved arch top with the delicate recessed fan motif was modeled in another instance of the software, then imported into the front layout file to complete the project design.
The finished dimensions of the sample Mantle Clock are about: 9″ W x 3.625″ D x 12.5″ T
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 8.0 or higher.
