Steampunk santa

6 posts in this topic

I like wood carving, building toys and making robots from unrelated parts. I got tired of carving santa's and wood spirits and started looking for alternatives. I also like steampunk stuff , so i tried to combine these concepts. The carving is based on a roughout from Mike Shipley (sorry mike) and originally was carry a bag full of toys. I carved the bag into a face and added the parts. The swords are from a bar set, the gun is from an adding machine, the goggles are grommets filled with elmers glue,the chain is a bracelet, the ears are from an electrical fuse holder, and the bowling pin from ebay. I dont do a back story for most of my stuff, but here is his: The North Pole runs amok with various steampunk monsters and Santa enjoys hunting them during the off season. He has just bagged a monster and in the spirit of a matador, used swords to slay the beast. Santa is also an avid bowler and proudly displays his leagues most valued trophy, "The Golden Bowler". Hope you like it and thanks for allowing me to post these pictures.

Yeah that monster looks like he still can't believe he lost.

Kinda neat. I've played the big guy in red myself a lot.

I like super sculpey for my projects. The idea of carving scares me. Make a mistake and you're stuck with it. Durham's rock hard water putty is good stuff too. Just don't mix it too thin.
