Another steampunk challenge at Sandee & Amelie's!
I do love my steampunk.
January's theme is the number 3
I decided to repurpose a plastic six-pack beer can topper that's used to hold the cans together.
After some cutting, some spray paint, rub n' buffing, shrinky dinking and embellishing I came up with...
Any steampunker worth there salt would simply have to have access to a third-eye while at something as populated as an opera.
Why not make it fashionable.
The lens were created from shrink plastic, which I've found is NOT an exact science.
A dremel ended up being quite useful in sanding my shrinked (shrunk?) discs down to size which were then glued into place.
The signature third-eye, complete with gauges for adjustment.
A normal lens for actually seeing the opera.
I used a wire hanger, homemade gauges, beads and embellishments for the dainty holder.
Again, fashion is important.
I just KNOW they'll be the talk of the town!
Happy Day to everyone!
