Steampunk Bird House by Mary

It's almost spring so you know what that means. It's time for my yearly steampunk project!
The house was covered with different sizes of squares of 3M foil tape. These pieces were placed  over the surface of the birdhouse. Using a stylus, I made an impression in the foil to create a rivet look. Black acrylic paint was applied over the foil and then buffed off when almost dried.  The gears you see on the front were painted with acrylic paint. The ones under the flowers were glossed  with clear liquid embossing fluid. Glitter in sliver and clear was applied to the gear acting as the opening into the birdhouse.
You can see on the next two pictures that I had applied different sized gears to the back and both sides before applying the the tape. The clock hand was embossed with black embossing powder.
Thanks for checking out the blog today! Make sure you stop back tomorrow for information on our Facebook group challenge for the month of March!
