I’ve finished the sculpture for the ornamental steampunk bracer I’m working on. Next step is to make a silicon mould then this is going to be cast up in resin with brass filler powder to give it a metallic finish.
This will adorn a bracer like this one:
Here’s the beginning of a design for a new steampunk bracer I’m making – similar in style perhaps to my brass man gauntlet. I’m going for a slightly more ‘elegant’ ornate and less techy look although I think I will have some smaller steampunk gizmos on it here and there.
The sculpture will be moulded in silicon once it’s done and then cast in resin with brass metal filler to give it a metallic look. I want to try and experiment with some metal finishes to give it an antiqued, slightly green corroded brass look. You can get some stuff that’ll do the job from Tiranti’s.
