Steampunkified Shark Brooch
For those interested- this a countdown for Shark Week!
I think it is a just a groovy steampunky pin. The process was easy and I love the end results.
Plastic heart frame
I already had a heart shaped frame cast and wanted to use in a unconventional design. So I purchased a plastic shark with the idea to cast the head. Check out your discount store toy aisles and...
Let your mind go!
I made a mold of the head, just up to the side fin and then cast the mold.
After I removed it from the mold, I didn't like how it sat on the frame so I took out my handy dandy file and took some of the side.
I used some copper, silver and ebony rub-n-buff on the shark and the heart frame.
I then glued the lace ribbon around the back to give it that Victorian look.
You can glue the pin back on now or wait until the glue sets up. I waited.
Now you have your very own steampunkified shark brooch, perfect for your Shark Week formal gathering or anywhere else this cool pin would go!
What is your crazy spin?
Until next time,
