Angela's Steampunk Tutorial

It's DT member Angela here and I have a Tutorial on how to make this Greyboard Steampunk style frame.

 This is how I made it.
Started with a Steampunk cog frame set from That Craft Place which is available here.
It comes like this:

First I cut several extra cogs using Tim Holtz dies and a large one for the centre.
Once everything was prepared I started to build up the design by applying Embossing Paste and Glass Bead Texture Gel through a stencil onto the back section.
This stencil is the one I used and it is available from That Craft Place.
Next I glued down the cogs and covered everything with Gesso, when that was dry, started adding the colour.
 Before applying the top frame section I added treasure Gold gilding wax which makes the colour and detail really pop.
Gradually I attached more cogs to the top and added crackle glaze, building up the design.
I also included some metal embellishments to complete the look.
I do hope you enjoyed watching me make this.
If you can, please leave me a comment as I would love to hear what you think.
 Don't forget our latest challenge is HERE

  1. Great to see how this all came together Angela. I adore the shades of blue highlighted with the gilding wax and the clock face is the perfect finishing touch.
