Here's a second set of guns I did with more accurate charms, now with a closer view so people can see how I made the charms, hopefully?
For the charms, I used a silicone nonstick pad and a hotglue gun. I bent wire into the basic shapes, and laid down hot glue onto the pad into various other shapes. I let the hot glue cool, the glued them onto the wires.
For instance, the one on the right with all the bubbles, I glued little blobs of hotglue on the pad so they dried like little domes. I glued two of those together for the little sphere, then glued it to the wire.
The "comet" one was a little harder, I had to glue directly onto the wire and quickly dip the wire into a bowl of cold water to harden it before the glue dripped.
"Stowaway" is a 15x19 airbrush, acrylic, and colored pencil hand done on illustration board. The model is Bianca Beauchamp. Artist note: Most people miss the subtle shadow floating over the engine and across her thigh, and onto the wall. It raises the question who really is the pilot of the spacecraft, and who is the stowaway?
