We’ve been working on “Steampunking” up our office at school, working with a nautical theme - inspired in part by Jules Verne.
I’ve been trying to find something to put above our door and one night I found this:
I think it’s from something Disney did at one time (a pin?), it was exactly what I was looking for. So I fired up Corel and started the vector machine.
It needed to be about 3ft wide to look right above the office, so i knew it was going to be done in several smaller parts. It ended up being about 5 layers deep, each layer a bunch of pieces that were glued together.
Once it was done on the laser, I started to glue things up and fill cracks, etc
Then a bunch of primer:
Some gold paint (forget to take that pic)
And then some light aging:
Then we hung her:
The portholes and gable pieces were also done on the glowforge.
I’m pretty happy how it turned out… Now onto the next door!
