Fairytale goes Steampunk!!

Hi Everyone!!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

I have been working on a challenge for SanDee and Amelie's Steampunk challenge;
'Fairytale Steampunk'
Can you guess what mine is?

 First I drew a wolf shape on some corrugated card and covered it with scraps of aluminium tape.
Using a ball tool I made lines and dots, then painted it with black acrylic paint and wiped it off leaving paint in the dents.
I cut some cogs and made them look rusty with embossing powder before sticking them behind the wolf's mane.
 My son allowed me to borrow some Warhammer paint for the blood! The colour is called Red Gore!!
I joined the lower jaw to the head using a key brad, so it can move up and down.
 I made an opening and closing eye like a camera shutter.  This was quite complicated but effective.
There is a lever behind the head to open and close the eye.
Yes of course, the fairytale is Red Riding Hood.
I really had a lot of fun making this and would like to enter into the Steampunk Challenge.

I hope you like it too.

Thanks for visiting

  3. An awesome interpretation of Red Riding Hood, Jolanda!

    And using "Red Gore" makes it even more interesting! (How generous of your son to let you use some of it LOL). I really adore your camera shutter eye mechanism!!! WOW!!! And that bit of red fabric adds a lot of drama to your Steampunk wolf!!! Brilliant!

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us at SanDee&amelie's Steampunk challenges!
