So far my little Lord Hamilton (Gizmo, as Mr. Amaranth calls him) is coming along quite nicely. I wasn't sure I could pull this mod off, but he's really looking great so far. I'm really proud of myself.
|Working on my dining room/project table that we never actually dine on. This is my mess.|
I am not proud of this mess. XD
List of stuff still to do:
Total cost of the project so far (ignoring initial investments such as pastels and such, since I use them for other dolls):
|The little gears and such turn here too. This will be part of his monocle/goggle |
thing to cover his steampunk eye (e.g. the eye well that shattered).
Still have to make the strap for it.
I'm also an engineering major (second B.S. degree whoop whoop), so gears and moving things are kinda my thing.
|The gears make the wings really heavy. Since the hook already |
broke in one wing before it even arrived at my house,
I put the heavier set of gears on the more secure wing.
|Lined the keyhole thingy with epoxy too so that the |
key won't tear into the soft resin.
|Frustratingly not perfect enough, but hoping I can |
fix the annoying spots with sanding and carving.
