Arrangement in Steampunk #4: Gearing Up for Robots
Steampunk robot assembly in progress last night... I felt like a kid with a new toy! After taking apart a number of old clocks, I've managed to collect a very nice variety of antique brass gears and guts. Channeling my inner Frankenstein, matching this gear with that chain, and mixing this screw with that nut, I ended up with... Lola... at least that's what I'm calling her for now.
The final assembly will include a nod to her clock ancestry, lit by test tube lights on a decoupaged tray.
Assembled from clock gears, chains and the actual pendulum.
