So, while my net was shut off, I decided I'd like to tool around with some sculpy. I wanted to start making some steampunk inspired work with gears and things.
This is a rough prototype. I wasn't altogether too concerned with finishing everything this first time around and making sure it was straight and tidy. We'll call it conceptual.
I needed gears. Wee little clock gears. We have a clock repair shop here and I thought I might as well see if there were a few old gears they could let me have. I ended up with two tubs full of old watches. The guy who works there, Tim, was so nice and awesome. He said I could just have them so long as he could see what I was up to.
I cast the gears using a mold compound. I'd love to use the actual gears in a piece and plan to in the future, but since that is a limited resource, I'll have to figure out just what I want to do with them first.
Lastly, if you like the look of this and are interested in purchasing one, please read my journal and leave a comment. It will help me out a lot. Thankyou!
