Here's a little work I just completed this week. The original design came from Ramiel with a heavy steampunk influence and a back story of a Victorian Science group. (see the plaque)
Then I went ahead and built the actual using lasercut/engraved plexiglass, a little bit of PVC pipe, and some copper wire for the coil.
I then proceeded to mold it making it hollow with a removable back so that electronics and further modifications could be done easily.
And the first casts waiting to be painted. Molded in 12 pieces with copper wire coil.
Right now, the possible finishes are going to be British Racing green and a hammered metal finish. The finished piece is approx. 8" x 5"
