Steampunk pen and book. The pen was made from an old kit and some fridge fittings and the book was made from mdf coated with chemical metal given an old patina with paint and waxes. Again I used old fittings for the top and an old bike chain for the edge.

Strewth! Now what the heck am I supposed to use as my criteria for choosing a winner? :nooidea:

I looked at the first couple and thought "Ah! Easy winner!" Then I looked at the next few and wasn't so sure, then a few more ... then MORE ... !!! Well done to all entrants, that was a cracking showing! And not just quantity but quality is way up there too!
