Ahoi
My first real lamp, thought ice and steampunk work VERY well, specially after playing frostpunk with passion.
A tiny cityscape on top, iced over with help of Noch model making material. Watchparts and selfturned brassparts,
tubings, copper-pipes, for the pillar under the city. And now I notice, I did not take any pics of the city on top!
Video in the making...loooong video.

I love the idea of a city siting on a mechanism of rising from the sea floor  Smiley. Lovely work, as always.

Yours,
Miranda.

Thank you mam. I liked the idea as well...last times the city was the main-act, now its more a side-kick.
Next time I make the base more sturdy, it was hard to work with...hard to make it stay in place. Very flimsy ^^

Excellent video! Learned a lot just watching it. A few questions:
1) what is the white stuff in the tub you used to make the ice?
2) Did you make (or 3-D print) the city? If not where did you find it?
3) how did you suspend the fish (shark?) in place while the resin cured?

Its not white, its clear....thats just the resin in the vacuum chamber. Looks white when its foaming up aka de-gassing.
Cities can be bought online, forgot the name of the site, you have to buy them in japan, thats for sure.
And no.3: Luck.

THanks for the reply
Re #1: sorry, my bad. I meant the white  "ice" stuff around the city that you applied with a knife/spatula. What is that?

Oh thats "Noch Snow Paste". Modelmaker brand from Germany. I think Woodland Scenics over there in the US offers a similar product.
Looks neat, easy to handle.

I saw the video. Wonderful range of skills used in this project, from resin to machining metal. That snow paste, is it slighly granular (I can't see well in my phone screen)? It really is a large number of steps to get this done. Very well done.

Thanks C & W.

 I dont even show all of the steps...was about to do it in 4 videos, showing more detail, but I got too much stuff on my bench.

The paste is even better than assumed, there are small alu particles, making it sparkle. The only con is the "stand". I made tiny snow drifts, but they were melting like
cookie-dough in the oven, fusioning with the ground.

That is absolutely amazing!

 I enjoyed the video too, with enough information to show me how it was done, but not endless repetition (the "I had to repeat an action a thousand times to make this, so you have to watch me do it a thousand times because I never use the pause or fast forward button" school of videography). You also had the camera in exactly the right spot with the correct lighting; it was spot on, thank you so much for sharing

Funny, I actually like to skip a few parts, like cutting 6 exact same parts or something....filing them all to remove burrs and so on.
Just because I find that pretty boring too. Specially when its nothing essential or super-important.
Thanks for the feedback!

Clearly this is not your first rodeo. So many advanced crafting techniques and visionary idea. Brilliantly conceived and executed.

Usually I am more the weapon guy, but on a rainy sunday, its fun to put together a tiny city...if you know what I mean :>
Even bought a new airbrush, just for that.
