So, here is the most ornate piece of Steampunk art that I have done, as of yet.
This framed 7.5″ x 11″ piece features a center focal point of a wood handled paint brush surrounded by a wide variety of embellishments (that I pretty much lost track of, as far as who they are from, as I was madly working away).
After everything was glued down, I coated everything with black gesso and then added color with metallic paints. I really think I good get fully into the Steampunk mode…must do more research! 🙂
