Steampunk Time Bandit

Time Bandit

From “time to time” we have chunky atc swaps on our PWA Yahoo group and it’s always so much fun to create a special one of a kind piece of art to share.  This time I was paired up with my friend Lisa.  It was great to give it to her in person and watch her reaction!  For Lisa’s chunky I covered a wooden block with some old time wrapping paper.  Then I distressed it with a brown ink pad.

The head is made from a large watch piece with the inside gears still in tact and turning.  The hands on the back of the block also move freely.  It has a black micro bead sash and a brooch from a craft store.  The arms are mismatched cabinet knobs that move back and forth and up and down.  My favorite feature is the feet.  Made of clock gears that have been inset together, if you turn one it turns the other.  It’s a neat interactive piece!
