Steampunk Altered Bottle

Hello Makers!

Today I bring steamy art...a steampunk altered bottle. I just love making steampunk/industrial anything. The bottle is the classic glass coke bottle.  The sheet metal is made entirely out of Premo Polymer clay, which baked into the bottle. The gears are made of chipboard, and metal and all the rivets and screws are made out of clay. The porthole and wingnut is real hardware. Epoxy clay was used to to secure the stopper. The whole thing was painted with Finnabair Heavy Black Gesso, then treated with metallic wax.

I am also entering this project to the Retro Kraft Shop - Retromania#20 Challenge
