Just finished this Steampunk Flying Machine in time for my exhibition at the Tattoo Convention in Tours, France. 
Made from an Antique Incense Burner, the wings from a toy Dragon, a needle valve from a carburetor, some clock parts and an old candlestick.
This sold, over the weekend, along with every other piece I made!





I now have a busy couple of months before the next convention, so back to work.....

That's where people have such a fantasy! You've taken something like a metal vase? And "just" gave her wings? Simple and elegant.

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

Beautiful.
Is it a combination of metal and plastic?

Thanks Selected, yes, the main body and all parts are metal, only the wings are a really tough ABS plastic, coloured to match the natural tarnished patina of the metal.

I really must applaud you keen eye for aesthetics. Another beautiful quasi-Art Nouveau piece there.

Thanks everyone, I have been amazed and humbled by my first two Tattoo conventions, where the appreciation for steampunk and cabinet of curiosity pieces is amazing.  I got such a buzz from seeing all my pieces sell to such great people, and the looks on faces of those who knew nothing of Steampunk was a sight to behold.

I have yet to attend an actual Steampunk convention, so I can draw no comparisons as yet, but I guess sold out is sold out!

I now have to knuckle down to building for the next convention in July, it's not work though is it?? Smiley

I would never have imagined such a list of words to be used at one time. A carburetor needle and an incense burner? Man! What a beautiful end result too. Makes me want one as well.
