Intro: Steampunk'd Goggles

The finished goggles!

Step 1: Black Cybergoth Goggles for the Punkin'

I had these black plastic goggles I wanted to punk. These can be purchased for < 10.00 GBP.

Step 2: Materials

Selection of small headed brushes.

Some acrylic craft paint in a suitable metallic - I went with a bronze which I got from Hobbycraft for 2.50 GBP, there's plenty of paint leftover for further projects, but this was the smallest pack size I could find.

Optional: lizard lenses. I bought these cheap costume glasses from DiscountUK around Halloween (I think they were around the 1.00 GBP mark), simply because I wanted to use the lenses in something one day!

Total additional investment: 3.50 GBP

Step 3: Break Apart for Painting

I unscrewed the lenses and painted the component parts separately, 2 thin coats give a better finish than trying to put too much paint on at once in one pass.

Leave paint to dry between coats. 2 coats of paint should suffice.

Step 4: Re-assembly

When dry, re-assemble your goggles, swapping out lenses as appropriate for your project.

    Would cheap googles work that I got at walmart? i've had these things since 2014 for my costume when i was in Marching Band (it was optional to dress up for the Halloween parade) and I've been wanting to do something with them since, they've just been on my Deadpool Head Bust coin bank since.

    Googling gives me 1.54 USD (US Dollar) == 1.00 GBP (Great British Pound)
