Here’s something that I’ve posted a few pics of on Instagram recently.  It’s a steampunk version of Tony Starks ‘arc reactor’.

I’ve recently bought a lathe and so I’ve been able to machine the components for this myself which has been great fun.

I’m actually making a few to try and populate my etsy store a little more!

This is designed to be worn on a waist coat and accompany my ‘iron man’ gauntlet.

I’ll have a full build log coming soon on YouTube, but for the time being here’s a video of the gauntlet.

I recently attended the annual Steampunks in Space event at the National Space Centre in Leicester.  I’ve exhibited my sculptures there before but this time round I also ceated a piece specifically for the event.  They ran a ‘space race’ exhibition for sculptures along a steampunk/space theme, so this is my piece.  It’s a silicon rubber sculpture built over a shop mannequin and then dressed in various pieces of steampunk kit that I’ve built over the years.

I’ll have a complete build log on this on youtube channel soon, but for the time being here’s a quick video from the event.

And here’re some more pics of the piece! :)

A few weekends ago I took part in The Sub Aquatic Steampunk Weekend 2017 in Gosport.  Here’s a video about the weekend.

Here’s the image that Dark Box Photography took of my mask :)

Here’s part two of my video series looking at making a steampunk mask.

As mentioned this is for the Asylum Steampunk festival in Lincoln at the end of august so I’m trying to get everything ready in time.  This is the first time I’ve managed to get everything on to test whether it all works.  I found that the ventilation unit on the back (which actually works and circulates air through the mask) was a little too low so the gas mask hoses were a little too tight.  I’ve been re-adjusting this

I’m also making a steampunk revolver, which is the first time I’ve actually had a go at making a steampunk hand gun.  This is made from copper piping and some plywood which I’ve covered in plastic, leather and some cast resin pieces made from CO2 cannisters and various other mechanical pieces.

I’ve also made some union jack shin guards which are made from foam covered in fibre glass which I’ve sanded smooth.

Here’s the first part of my build log looking at the creation of my steampunk mask/flight helmet.

I’ve got a little further along in the build than the video shows, but I’ll be detailing that fully in the next part.

A few months ago I was commissioned to make a steampunk mask and bracer for a musician.  We had abit of a nightmare getting the items to him (he lives in Australia), but they got there in the end!
