Pocket Watch cases ala Tim Holtz

Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


I am looking for pocket watch cases for mixed media. I have seen some in one of Tim Holtz books that look new and appeared to be made just for mixed media. The book provided a site to purchase but they no longer carry the pocket watch case. I do not want to put the money out for antique pocket watch cases. Can you help?

Thanks, Lu

Mixed Media Art Questions answered Milliande

Personally I do not know of any online supplier that specialises in Mixed Media Art Supplies that stocks pocket watch cases...

I usually buy mine from ebay ... looking for people that sell mixed bundles of old discarded watchparts ... last time I had 2 pocket watch cases amongst all sorts of other little bits and bobs for mixed media assemblage art ..like watch parts, gears, springs etc .. but I guess its pot luck

It is also worth checking local yard sales/ car boot sales etc if they have those where you live

Antique watches are usually too expensive to be utilised for mixed media art ..so looking for discarded , non functioning clock parts that can be salvaged and repurposed is what I do ..

Maybe someone else can jump in if they know of an online supplier that carries mixed media pocket watch blanks ??

Have you tried contacting Tim Holtz direct ( I know he is on facebook too and runs a blog) and ask him whether he has any recommendations since the suggested supplier no longer carries them ?

hope this helps

Pocket Watch Cases

Try www.cforiginals.com. This lady sells watch parts and there's a chance she might know where to find the pocket watch cases if she doesn't carry them herself.
Plus you can always look up Pocket Watch Case on Google Search.
