Hey guys! Long time, no see! Even though life is a little hectic, I have to come back every once in awhile... this community is what got me started in the claying world. I miss it!

I wanted to show you some of my newest work - some mechanical birdies! They both have one blue eye.

This guys name is BULOVA! I used a watch winder for one of his eyes, and it happened to say Bulova on it, so I decided... that's a cool name. Smiley








...And this guys name is RUSTBUCKET! I used copper, bronze, and brass mica powders to detail him so he looked sort of rusty.

Great work!

I haven't been on Craftster much the last several months, but I peeked over here this morning on a whim. I just have to say your work has really improved - your pieces have a much more polished look to them than they did when you first started. It's always been good, but it's really starting to stand out from the crowd.  Wink

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Oh my goodness. This is magnificently gorgeous. I'm just really getting into the steam-punk stuff, this is just. Really one of a kind and very well done. I didn't realize it was from clay until I read the description better. Very very well done.

I am blown away!!! Holy crap, those are amazing! Please tell me that you used legit watch parts and gears to detail them (apart from the eyes). If you molded the gear bits on Rustbucket's back yourself, I might die Shocked

This is just fantastic. I was sure it was metal until I investigated.

Thanks very much, guys! It makes me very glad to hear that you think my work has improved - that means the world to me.

And YES - those are real watch parts and gears. Goodness, that would be some CRAZY molding if I made them from clay! Smiley

Okay, I'm glad I can calm down now. If you had made all of it I would have had to come worship at your feet. As it is, I can satisfy myself with worshipping you over the internet Tongue They're so gorgeous.
