Fom my stash: Aluminium foil, tin, old robot parts, doll head, cardstock, eyelets, wood - sticks, plastic spools, two old forks, led - chain of lights, brads. metal embellishments, E 6000.
A little *How to do*
A dollhead, leg - parts from an old robot and a cardboard tin.
I've made a little steampunk hat from cardstock, glued the dollhead to the lid with E - 6000 and i used self - adhesive aluminium foil around the tin, which went thru the cuttlebug with a sizzix die.
A applyed a base layer of green acrylic paint to the foil, then painted all numbers and letters with red acrylic paint.
I sanded some foil off and painted the spots black
Here you see a (wood) stick and two plastic spools, i used for the third leg
Because the acrylic paint didn't hold on to the plastic spool...
..i used Americana Multi Surface Satin for a base coat and painted acrylic paint on top
I painted the head with titanium white first, applyed weathered wood crackle medium - and a wash of burnt umber on top which i mostly wipped of. The goggles are cardstock and eyelets. Inside the main metal - embellishment at the hat, i used 3D Gloss Enamels and on top some tiny clock parts and Triple Thick Gloss Glaze
The arms are two old cake forks.
Inside the tin, you'll find a (battery) LED - chain of lights. Two little light bulbs are glued to the
eye - opening with E - 6000
The tricky part was to get the chain of lights into the head, pushing thru a tiny little hole i've cut into the plastic lid.
I hope you like my little doll - robot.
I'm very excited to see what you make (:o)
