Some steampunky, all geeky. ^_^ I've been making ornaments and magnets and maybe pendants to have some smaller things for the table. Here's the ornaments!
Tiny rayguns! 15 of them. They were sold in bags of six as party favors at dollar tree, and the ones around me don't carry them anymore, bah.
Painted with a mix of acrylic paint, and nail polish, clear sealer, and made a hole with a push pin to add a hanger.


Glass ornaments clearance from last year. spray painted gold and a little black,downloaded gear images, and there's a tiny bit of gold paint in the clear sealer.

Three zeppelins, from a set of three at the thrift store. Painted, added propellers, and used the good old pushpin to make a place for a hanger.

Cool stuff; I like gears the best out of the three designs.  Maybe you could add some little gondolas to the zeppelins, although, offhand, I'm not sure what you could use?

Yeah,gondolas would be good, but right now I can't think what to use for them.
