Hello and welcome to this fab Steampunk Blog Hop. My creation is this steampunk machine made using a combination of new and recycled parts. I had a lot of fun making this! The rules for the hop and other participants are below.
I have upcycled an old mushroom container and old air compressor pump and some cardboard alongside using mdf cogs, corrugated pipe, die cuts, and embellishments made from UT embossing powder, filler and clay.
We have 16 prize sponsors for our Steampunk Hop - we're proud to say these are small businesses run by artists. Let's show them some love!
Today I would like to share my dragon eye heart and how I made it. I started with a print out of eyes I bought off Etsy a couple of years ago and attached clear glass beads you buy for decoration (I bought mine in Dunelms).
Once these were dry I cut around them and glued one onto a paper mache heart. I then creating the eye socket with some light air dry clay and glue.
I then glued egg shells all over and once dried covered in black gesso (thought I had photographed this but obviously forgot, oops) I also painted some resin wings I had with gesso.
Once everything was dry the wings were shaped at the ends to improve the fit of the heart and two holes drilled and pins inserted into each one. Each were also glued to give them a strong bond. Once dried everything were painted with a combination of mica powder and pearlizing medium.
I had a fab time making this one and hope my mojo is now back to stay as I have so many ideas floating around my head. I am entering this into the Bleeding A…
