Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Needed:
Here is what you need for the steampunk bracelet:
1: eva Foam
2: Exacto Knife
3: Acrylic paint (bronze or gold & brown)
4: Misalliances Gears
5: Hot glue gun/w glue sticks
6: Elastic band.
Step 2: Cuting the Pieces
I measured the length of my wrist (side to side) and the width I wanted it to be.
Then I Drew those measurements on to the eva foam (pic. 1).
I then cut it out with the exacto knife (pic. 2)
If you don't like the thickness like me you can cut it in half, (pic. 3) witch means you can make two bracelets.
Step 3: Designing the Details
I took some gears and laid them out on the bracelet how I liked (pic. 1).
I then traced the Gears onto the foam (pics. 1-4)
Step 4: Almost There!
I then glued the Gears on the bracelet with the hot glue (if the gears come off krazy glue works too).
To paint it I mixed some gold & brown acrylic paint to make a bronzeish color.
Then I painted the bracelet with the mixed paint (be careful not to paint the gears).
Step 5: Finishing Touches
I took the elastic and measured how long I needed it so it can go on my wrist.
I then glued the strap onto the bracelet.
(Optional) If your bracelet is lose you can take a square piece of foam, cut it in half, and glue them on the strap (pics. 2 & 3)
Step 6: Finished!
There you go! Finished!
