altered kitchen whisk with steampunk style
front view of altered kitchen whisk with steampunk style

This strange and peculiar item is an altered kitchen whisk. It is now, at least in my view, a steampunk flying machine.

It is for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind. The theme is “Whisk the Night Away.”  Consequently, the flying machine has some stars!

First, I painted the wire parts of the whisk with several different colours of Luminiere paint.

I had some real peacock feathers that a super-duper lady from AFTCM sent me quite a while ago. I thought they were too pretty to use, but eventually I decided it was wasteful not to incorporate them in a project, so here are some of them. I did keep some for myself!

The front of the flying machine is meant to represent  peacock heads. I drew it by hand on shrink plastic,  including goggles, and then coloured it with pigment inks. I shrunk the plastic and added some rhinestones to emphasize the crest of “feathers” on the head.

The front “wheel” is made from several items made from shrink plastic and strung together with florist wire. I made several stars, cutting with a stencil, using black shrink plastic. I also stamped several steampunk gears on translucent shrink plastic, and used silver heat embossing powder when I shrunk them.

The two heads are separated using a metal socket purchased in a set at the Dollar Store. The back wheel is also a metal socket.

The two round silver things are items from the hardware store. I stamped them with a steampunk design, using black Stazon ink. I placed  two red jingle bells in the center of each.

The front has a black button with silver stars on it, and several strands of chain.

At the end of the handle, where the handle joins the body, I taped the feathers in place, using double sided sticky tape. I covered the other side of the tape with micro beads.

The steampunk flying machine is put together, primarily, using magnetic craft buttons. It can be taken apart readily, therefore, and reassembled just as easily.  I bought the magnetic craft buttons at the Dollar Store, along with the sockets.

It’s pretty weird.
