Steampunk Butterfly Part Two

This here flutterby is taking its time to come together! Mainly because I keep thinking of laborious additions… I needed to come up with a way to attach the wings to the body, so decided to make some cogs to rivet to the back of the body, and then attach the wings to that.


I cut a cog from thin copper as before, riveted it to thicker brass and cut it out, to make it easier to turn sharp corners, I drilled 1mm holes at strategic points, turning it into a metallic dot-to-dot!


As usual, there was a lot of filing to be done to tidy it all up, mostly done to the strains of Metallica. And Johnny Cash. I just need to rivet it all together and do a bit of bending to give it some depth.


Maybe tomorrow…
