So what is steampunk. Think of it as a mix of sci-fi, sanitary, the industrial revolution, the age of steam power and a plethora of mad, moustached inventors in their top bowler hats and monocles creating weird and wonderful mechanical objects and flying machines.
I find it a very inspiring and fantastical theme. Your imagination is the driver of your creations, so I decided to label myself an IMAGINEOLOGIST. As artists we are free to create the weird wild and amazing and this project is just an extension of that. I hope you have fun with it . So let's go…
|Here I taped down a framelet stencil at the top centre|
of the apron, and beginning from the centre and working outward, stippled on the white paint .

|Using a variety of stencils, continue stippling on white Setacolor paint.|
I used different sizes and fit them kind of like a jigsaw.
|Pencil in a circle and draw an eye in|
the top centre frame we first stencilled.
|Using the black SetaSkrib marker,|
colour the pupil and outline the lid.
|Continue adding colours.|
Darker blues add depth.
|Using the fluro green marker and the |
fluro blue, add layers of colour to the pupil.

edges of the eyelid to create dimension.

|A touch of blue , then black help with depth.|
Remember to blend while west with a wet brush.
|Bow by using the purple marker,|
add shadow around the lid.
Blend colour which a wet brush.
|A light layer go black , and add a little |
more white as the highlight on the lid.
|Keep going with your markers till you are happy.|
Adding layers of the translucent markers
is one of my favourite things. See how the colours vary,
depending on the colour underneath.
|With a light hand, add a little of the red|
to the lid. This unites the piece.
