I saw a camera kit on Kits n Kabooble and loved it so i decided to build my own. Here is my take
My favorite thing is the light bulbs, found smaller fun shaped ones at the grocery store, perfect.
Inside camera frame is a concertina that i made after watching a tutorial from Kits n Kaboodle. Really love of the shape of the concertina resembles vintage folding cameras. Concertina contains mini booklets and photos slides.
View from the top.
To make the mechanicals i layered together bolts, washers, and chipboard gears. Paint with black gesso, then paint with umber brown acrylic paint.
Next rub on alchemy white gold wax with fingers or a stiff bristle brush. The final look is fantastic, aged metal.
