Hello Speampunk Man

 This was such a fun project.  I brought home this wood artist's mannequin from the store thinking he would make a great mechanical man for my upcoming Steampunk display.

First I decoupaged him with pages from an old book, then I cruised Graphics Fairy for some great Steampunk elements.

He has light bulbs on the sides of his head "Oh that's an idea" and a clock for his 'heart' just like the one the Tin Man got for his heart in the Wizard of Oz.

The display is still a work in progress but I love how my Steampunker turned out.

  7. You did some awesome steampunkin'! I love this! I think I will copy your idea a little bit; I have been looking for something to do with my mannequin for a while. It looks really boring.
