Steampunk Tangling – Part 4

Steampunk Week

We are on our 4th day of Steampunk tangling and artwork is popping up everywhere. I can’t wait to start the gallery šŸ™‚

Today I will cover materials – such as brickwork, metal plates, leather and wood.

Tricia Long posted her beautiful tile before I even had a chance to start on the different materials. Below you find instructions how to create a diamond metal plate background. You could outline the shape with a light grey marker. Pencil works just as fine though.

Timber is very popular in steampunk too!

And here I show you how to draw a leather belt.

Metal Plating – yes, it looks just too easy to create a step-out for it, I know … However, this place also provides inspiration. Browsing through the sections you pick up ideas. And that’s why I created this pattern card.

Today I have a task for you! Here is a string with a bear. You can traceĀ this templateĀ onto a piece of paper or draw your own bear. The task is to “metal plate” aĀ bear and turn him into a steampunk toy! Use all you have learnt so far. Gears, screws, hinges !

And YES – a TEDDY BEAR ! ..haha..

Looking forward to your creations! See you forĀ Part 5 tomorrow!
