Zig Zag Steampunk Panel
This is my latest commission. The first photo shows the panel illuminated in window light and the second photo shows the panel in ambient light.
The customer asked for a panel with various brown glasses and specifically requested gears on the piece. The panel measures about 14″x44″.
With this panel, because it was so large, I was worried real metal gears would add too much weight. So this time I used plastic gears that were laser cut by Aserlay Engraving. The plastic has a metallic foil surface over a very thin plastic core. On the other side is a strong adhesive layer, so it also eliminated the need for epoxy.
All in all, I’m quite pleased with the effect. I’m delivering the panel tomorrow so hopefully the customer is pleased too.
