DIY Steampunk Supplies
- Foam board
- Heavy duty foil
- Spray adhesive (optional but it helps)
- Metal stuff. Bolts, washers, springs, cogs, old keys, old metal buttons etc.
- Gold & silver spray paint
- Dry erase marker
- Large black pom pom (optional for eraser)
My dad has a workshop that he let me raid. I found the most awesome stuff!
Gather your supplies. TIP: Use heavy duty foil.
Cut your foam so that the foil will cover it easily and fold over onto the back.
For a better hold coat your board with spray adhesive before applying the foil. Fold it around the back and secure with glue or tape.
If needed, spray paint your metal pieces. I used a mixture of gold and silver.
Layout our pieces on the edges of your board then glue into place using any firm glue.
I had a spring that was perfect for using as the dry erase marker holder.
Dry Erase Marker: I spray painted the bottom portion of the marker and glued on a large black pom pom to use as a quick eraser.
I wrapped some wire around my marker to keep it in place in the spring holder.
