Introduction: Steampunk Themed Christmas Tree

关于:我喜欢重新制作和恢复旧家具,并制作每天都没有看到的木工项目。我用木材制作我的大部分项目,即被回收,回收和喜欢重新培养和休息......

这是所有蒸汽朋克粉丝,或者寻找非传统圣诞树的人。整个树已经使用我在我家周围找到的再生材料制成。它主要是纸板和常见的再循环钻头和鲍勃。我必须警告你这个过程看起来像猫夹在一起的东西,但最终结果很棒。

Step 1: Making the Gears

齿轮都是由普通纸板箱制成的。使用大型指南针,我为齿轮做了一些圆圈。我剪掉了4个圆圈,最大的是25厘米,每圈越来越小5厘米。您可以使用工艺刀来剪掉圆圈。

Step 2: Making a Template

I found some images of gears that I liked and printed them off to use as a template. The paper gears were glued onto the cardboard as a cutting guide. You can use a sharp knife to cut out the cardboard.

第3步:将纹理添加到纸板上

没有人想要纸板圣诞树,所以我想伪装是纸板的事实。为此,我使用了一些纹理粘贴和模板。将模板放在纸板上,并使用刮刀在模板上应用一些纹理粘贴,然后取下模板。这一步骤不需要整洁或整洁,它将全部被油漆隐藏。它真的无论你使用什么模板,因为这只是基础oat。稍后您将看到这一步骤的好处。我在每个齿轮上使用了一些不同的模板。此步骤刚刚随机添加。

Step 4: Fix My Gear

I messed up on this gear and accidentally cut out the centre. So I had to cut some cardboard to glue to the bottom to fill in the hole so it will attach to the pole. The texture on this gear was created by adding a layer of texture paste and pushing it down into the sand. It is not special sand It was myniece's sandpit.

第5步:寻找点缀

Because I do mixed media art, I collect every little piece of junk I find at home to add to my projects. I used mainly broken jewellery from thrift stores and junk from my workshop on this tree. The clear embellishments were made using resin and silicone moulds. And some charms were bought in bulk from Amazon and China.

Step 6: Add the Embellishments to the Gears

To glue the embellishments onto the gears I used craft glue for the small items and fabric and hot glue for the rest. The idea is to randomly cover the gears and layer the embellishment to get a 3-dimensional effect. I have added close-ups of the gears so you can see the items that I used there are too many to name. You can use just about any junk because it will all be painted. There is no need to put everything perfectly or to be overly concerned about any messy glue. This will all add to the effect at the end.

第7步:涂上齿轮

Next, use some black gesso to paint everything making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.

Step 8: Highlight the Paint

This is where the magic happens. Using copper wax paste you can now highlight the raised surfaces first. Touch the surface of the wax using your finger and rub some over all the raised surfaces. The idea is not to cover all the black, you still want the two-tone effect.

Step 9: Fill in Some Gaps

Once all the raised surfaces are covered, you can add a very light coat to the rest. I like to use a soft makeup brush with the tiniest amount of colour on and add it to some of the flat surfaces. You are not trying to paint it just highlight small areas. It will look like the second image when you are finished. Some of the gears in this and the previous step look very dark because they were taken at night, that is not the true colour.

Step 10: Making the Stand

To make the stand, I used a piece of wood and a threaded plate. I had the plate and threaded pole in my shed so I have no idea what it is called. It was left behind by the previous owner. You can screw the plate into the wood and screw in the threaded pole. The gears are held in place using nuts above and below each gear. Once I put it together it did not resemble the idea I had in my head. I did not like the look of the threaded pole.

第11步:隐藏极点

我剪了一小管我的灰水管,我用来浇水我的花园。这是黑色的,并用铜蜡粘贴突出显示。因为我按照我的方式让我的项目达成,所以我倾向于改变我构建的东西。我沿途找到了新的想法。

Step 12: Make Some Baubles

The Christmas tree still looked to plain to me so I made some steampunk style baubles from Styrofoam balls and old Christmas decorations. And that is my steampunk themed Christmas tree done.
