|A touch of gold seemed to be just the right touch|
for the scrolled top. Embossing on the Masonite
gears and prop makes them look metallic.
I covered the inside of the shrine with another pattern from Graphic 45's Steampunk line and duplicated the paper elements with real gears and watches and then set about to 'build' the scene. Luckily, the G45 paper has lots of suggestions...mannequins, bulbs, wings, goggles, clocks, etc. With the current popularity of SteamPunk, there are many products available and I've collected them all.
|I wanted to make the gears functional|
wheels but with only 2, it just wouldn't work.
|The 1" deep hutch is quite full but the variety of|
items and sizes fit perfect;y.
|No side...even the TOP side is left unfinished.|
Gears and spools lift the bird to its high perch.
