Box - painted by ivstvs Box - painted by ivstvs
This is a box to put drawings in for my little nephew.
Have a look at the unpainted version: fav.me/d305f7t

The sign on the top left corner reads: "Cogitatio - inductus aeternus" (Fantasy - Eternal Drive)

The two big advantages of this design are one the one hand: It allways looks great in a bookshelf and on the other hand: you can never pile something else on it because of the cogwheels. --> So this box will never vanish in the deeps of a lumber room. ^^

Über German-Steampunks. Ja, Gruppen sind manchmal recht nützlich... ;)
Trotzdem echt tolle Arbeit, die du da gemacht hast! Da kann man neidisch werden!

Mm, vielleicht sollte ich eher sagen: "trotzdem" es mir nicht sofort ins Auge gestochen und ich noch nicht früher darauf gestoßen bin, sondern erst eine Gruppe besuchen musste um es zu finden :D Deine Arbeit ist auf jeden Fall toll! Wie hast du die Zahnräder hinbekommen? Aus sehr dicker Pappe gesägt?

Die sind alle mit dem Cuttermesser aus Pappe ausgeschnitten. Das dicke Zahnrad in der Mitte ist aber aus Kappa, so einem Material, das Schaumstoff zwischen zwei weißen Papierflächen hat. Das ist in größeren Dicken erhältlich und trotzdem problemlos mit dem Messer schneidbar. ;)

Well, I definetly do but actually I need a new cause to produce more steampunk assemblages. ^^ This one was a babtism-gift for my little baby nephew today.
Either soon it is on of my girlfriends' birthday or somebody remunerates me for such work. xD
