I've tried my hand at Steampunk, well its not true steampunk but more inspired by the genre. I think mine would be Vintage with a Steam twist. The inspiration for it was the Cottingley Fairies & Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I've been bashing the metal again and was trying to form a large copper leaf for a necklace. The idea was that I would use the edge of my bench block and form the leaf so it had a nice crease down the centre. Hmm it didn't really work out the copper was old thick pipe it even had Yorkshire Imperial stamped on it. I tried to anneal it so it would be easier to work with, well my little torch wasn't man enough, so I tried 2 torches with little success. I did get the leaf into a pleasing shape in the end but it has made me realize I do need to get a decent torch.
