Thanks PaulAmazon sells the firelights, they are less than ten bucks. Just go there and put in fire effect bulbs.
Rybren, I got an Elegoo Mars 3 D printer. I never had any other kind so I am not sure what to compare it to. It is a resin printer and a little complicated to design stuff and be printed. I have as many failures as I have successes but I am getting better.
I really hope that one doesn't sell as I like it to much. It will be listed for $3,100.00 but I think I am going to raise that to $4,000.00.I really like the second one in your pic's
Amazing pieces Paul, I can well see why you wish some of them at least not to sell.I really hope that one doesn't sell as I like it to much. It will be listed for $3,100.00 but I think I am going to raise that to $4,000.00.
One of the problems with building Steam Punk stuff is it is supposed to be Victorian Science Fiction. My latest pieces are not really Steam Punk so I am not sure what to call them and I am thinking "Mechanical/electrical punk.
The small wooden lamp is pure steam punk.
Steam Punk should not have any plastic, chrome or aluminum. It can have wood, glass, iron, brass or copper as those things were available in the distant past. Sort of like Joe Biden, Betty White and your Queen
If you notice my 3rd picture, the center of the large bicycle chain gear is really white plastic. I have a thick paint that has iron particles in it and after I paint that on, there is also an accelerator that rusts the iron in the paint and gives you an authentic looking rusted piece of iron.
Now with my 3 D printer I can print black pieces but I still "rust" them to look authentic and you couldn't tell even if you were holding the piece.
This is pure Steam Punk
So is this.
This was always my favorite and I am sorry it sold. It made bubbles and was turned on by the water valve.
It's all white PVC and I painted it to look like brass. I am very happy how that came out.
This one here, the "grill" near the bottom is a white PVC piece of something that I used that iron/rusting paint to get that effect
Will wave back to you.That is extremly cool and I wish her a Happy Birthday.
We are having people come over to go out to dinner tonight, not in a lighthouse, but in a restaurant right on the Sound. Right on it like on pilings on it. The waves practically break on the windows so when I look out across the Atlantic I will wave at you two.
Have a nice time.
I would be in it with you fishing.That would be me out in the boat.
