I Glued Some Gears on it and Called it “Brass”
This altered canvas is the basis for another Steampunk Alchemy illustration for a perfume called “Brass.” The final illustration will have some digital enhancements, but I wanted to share the handcrafted part with you all now. This 5”x7” piece, as well as “Magic” and “Lighter than Air” will be available this fall through a Kickstarter campaign for the book.
I used a die-cutter to make several sets of gears awhile back, but none of them where the right color so I flipped them over and painted them to get the brassy color. I really liked the look of the brush strokes so I left them at a single coat. Starting this fall, I will have an Etsy shop where you can purchase Steampunk die-cuts like these to enhance your artwork and cardmaking.
