Hey everyone.  I am working on my first steampunk build project, and there is one aspect of it that I am having a little trouble with.  Part of the build involves taking 8-10 gauge brass wire, and bending it to look like pipeworks.  Once that is done, I would like to add "fittings" to enhance the illusion that these are little pipes.  I've tried searching about eleventy million different ways to figure out how to do this, but I haven't had any sucess.  Does any one know a URL to a how to, or tutorial that will help me figure out how to do what I want?  I've got the antiquing techniques down, it's simulating the fittings that are giving me fits.

Herr Döktor is the go-to guy when it comes to model making. I'm sure he knows of a way to achieve the desired effect!

Nuts and bolts could work nicely.
