You can now purchase this whole set in my shop here --->[link] All made from scratch and given plenty of uniqueness and personality; This beautiful Demonic armor set has a real "wow" factor to really draw some attention, A badass helmet with a STAGE LASER in the eye powered by a small AAA battery pack on the side of the mask and movable jaw to really scare some people > Chest armor lights, LED lit vials of liquid, and mutated teeth armor all give this costume a ridiculous shock and scare appeal. I wore this to a convention and could not stop getting asked for my picture
Front and rear shot of my new project. The various armour plates were sculpted in clay before they were moulded in silicone and fibreglass. To get the metal effect i mixed bronze powder into gel coat and coated the inside of the mould with it. I only used about 3.5X the weight of gel coat in bronze powder, you can go up to 5X if you want to get a bright finish. I backed the gel coat with a layer of chop followed by a layer of 300gsm fibreglass matting and then two layers fibreglass tissue. When it had cured I used wire wool to expose the metal particles before applying an antiquing fluid to age it. I gently shined the surface back up with a cloth and Brasso. The scales were sculpted in plastiline, moulded in plaster then cast in pigmented latex. They were painted up with layers of gold spray paint, iron paste and burnt umber acrylic paint to make them look like bronze. The feathers were from a Macaw, held into place with K&S tubing mounted into the back plate. The various straps and belts were bought from charity shops! You can't beat naturally aged leather They were cut and sewn to various buckles and stuck to the armour with contact adhesive. The garment underneath i tailored out of various fabrics including taffeta, poly cotton canvas, a light plum cotton for the lining and I've no idea what the main material is called I'm afraid.. I'm not even going to guessXD Anyway, hope you like it! The design is in my gallery, i know i doesn't have the silk painted wings, i haven't gotten around to fixing the design for them yet! Feel free to ask questions too! Daniel
A new clockwork arthropod made from watch parts and soldered together with lead free silver bearing solder. Of the Creature family: [link]
Like Creature, he has fiddler crab style claws. The most intricate body-chassis I've done to date. Started out as a bit of an "engine" assembly built around a heart of a brass winding stem knob. Balance wheels, bridges, stems, brass train gears, spring bars and other parts make up the core. An automotive lightbulb makes up the abdomen. The rear is inspired a bit by the war machine version of The Iron Giant. A balance wheel with spokes cut out forms a ring of support for the abdomen. Watch stems hold the balance wheel to the body, allowing greater support for the abdomen. Each side is different, yet organically balanced, much like real life. Watch bands act as neck support/spines. For more picture of this guy: [link]
You are looking at Mechanical Memory Key Number 21
I have finished the wood in a new glossy style, leaving it more durable but also silky to the touch.
The key has been made from the ground up, using the highest quality 16GB flash memory, housed in a hand carved Hyedua chassis. All watch movements have been hand chosen and constructed to form a brand new movement. It features a brass face plate for the usb connector and a brass inlay near the key chain hole. All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watch's that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.
It comes complete with a wooden lid and pocket watch chain. When plugged in the key glow red underneath the gears.
This item was made on commission basis so it not for sale
