Steampunk Mask

My name is Terri Sproul and I am the team Leader for the Viva Las Vegastamps Design team. Here is a project I made using the Steampunk stamps from them. Hope you enjoy.

I am just in LOVE with Steampunk right now.. and Viva Las Vegastamps! has the best steampunk stamps around. If you are a follower of my blog (Terri Sproul) you may have seen this. But I have added a few more gears onto it..

Supply List
Iridescent Bronze from Golden Acrylic
Micaceous Iron Oxide from Golden Acrylic
Wood mask - but I think a paper mache mask would work great
Glaze from Golden
Miracle Tape from Viva Las Vegastamps!
Stamps - STeampunk from viva Las Vegastamps!
Ink: shades of brown.. I used Stewart Superior inks
Creative Paper clay
Amazing Molding Putty
Gears - got my from Viva Las Vegastamps!


1) First thing I did was made some molds using my real clock gears. I used my Amazing Mold Putty to make my gears. I have a video on how to use this on the PaperClay blog.
2) After I finish making my molds, I started to make some Paperclay gears.
3) After my paperclay gear where dry I started to paint them. I used Golden's Iridescent bronze and Micaceous Iron Oxide to paint them. Made them look like real gears and NOT paperclay...
4) I found this mask at a yard sale over the weekend and it's was made of wood and painted white... I do believe a paper mache mask would work great for this project too.

5) I cover my mask with Golden Glaze to age the mask some. it was just too white.
6) I stared by stamping with my Gear stamp I got from Viva Las Vegastamps! all over the top of his head and a little down the one side of his face... just a little..

7) Add another Gear stamp image on his left cheek using Memories "Chestnut" Dye ink

8) Add a Zipper to his mouth using my Miracle Tape from Viva Las Vegastamps! this tape is great to adhere almost everything down... YOU NEED some of this stuff.

9) Added my Paperclay Gears to the side of his head and then added more Real gear around the Paperclay ones and in his eyes.... My mask is done... OMG... I really love it..

Starting in April we will be have a new project on this blog three times a week. Hope you all stop back by and see what our Design Team will be making for us. The team will be announce on March 28th - right here!

May your life be filled with Viva Las Vegastamps!

Good work. I especially like the layering effect.
