Ok, I think I have collected enough material to hand over to the hubby.  Now, to tell him I want a likeness of Geddy Lee on my left arm...  ph34r.gif

I can always show him a picture of my friend Petie's Geddy tattoo, and say, "hey, it could be worse..."  tongue.gif

I have mentioned this before...hubby has a bit of an "issue" with my Geddy crush.   eyesre4.gif

J, I just looked at your hubby's tattoo portfolio - he is really talented!  I can't wait to see how this comes out! biggrin.gif

Oh yes, he is very talented.  If you look at my photos on Facebook, there's a picture of me where you can see my right arm.  He did the koi/water scene for me this last summer.  wink.gif

I perused your photos - couldn't find the specific one you were referring to...maybe message me with it on FB?

Crikey - that's an amazing artwork! Same sort of design i'm going with later on - with the Japanese theme all down one side from arm to ankle.
Besides, there's nothing wrong with wanting a likeness of someone who means a lot to you as a tattoo.  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

I'm waiting on my Hubby to make me a holder so that I can add the pieces to taut chain. It's a pain to do without the chain being held. Hopefully tomorrow night.....

Where did you find all of these clock parts and gears?

I found most of them on ebay and a few on etsy. Search "cogs" or "watch parts".

The CA necklace is in stasis right now while I work on the centerpiece. I decided to take a lightweight circular piece and glue a CA logo onto that. I printed the logo out on photo paper (plus smaller ones for earrings) and am waiting for a dry(ish) day to spray it with several coats of lacquer. When I get it done, I will definitely post pics.


Also designing both a Natural Science and Xanadu necklace. And maybe a Tai Shan.

Hello!  

I'm new in this forum, so Hello everybody:)

Can you advise for me some good Steampunk book?  

I don't read any steampunk book, but i like the world and feeling behind it.


Some Steampunk computer game:

Cogs- Logically game


Trine- New, retro game



Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura -This is an RPG in steampunk world. Really interesting!
http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/arcanum_of_..._magick_obscura

The Elder Scrolls Morrowind (There are a lot of old ruin with steampunk style, but the game not really steampunk)


And i dont try this game, but it looks good:
Edge of Twilight - The Fall



All hail for  2.gif !!!  
(Yes, I just want to use that smiley)

Hi Wratek! Welcome to the forum! Hope to see you around here bekloppt.gif

The others can probably suggest steampunk books better than I can - I hope you find some good ones!

From the TM Tour Book:

I told the guys about an idea for a fictional world that had interested me lately, thinking it would make a great setting, maybe for a suite of songs that told a story. A genre of science fiction pioneered by certain authors (including my friend Kevin J. Anderson) had come to be called "steampunk," seen as a reaction against the "cyberpunk" futurists, with their scenarios of dehumanized, alienated, dystopian societies.

Good place to start....  wink.gif

I am currently reading an anthology of "SteamPunk" short stories called "SteamPunk II;" SteamPunk ReLoaded."  Great so far.  My local Barnes and Nobel store had it as a featured title in their "sci/fi; fantasy" section a few weeks back.  cool.gif

The other focal piece was too heavy so I used a thinner disc and glued the CA clock face onto it (after hitting the card stock with several coats of lacquer). I think this works better but I'm not sure if I can sell it because it has the Rush logo on it. Still, it was the best remedy.
