Victorian Medal by HerbertW
Victorian Medal
In recognition of 20 years of dedication to the advancement of the field of Preternatural studies.

A simple build. A small fake medal purchased from the fabric store. The center section is a plastic button from the craft store, backed by a circle cut from a plastic cup.
Delvers lantern by HerbertW
Delvers lantern
As a Preternatural investigator, its nice to have access to the latest in electrical lighting, but sometimes one had to rely on more basic tools, like this candle lantern from the 1870's. One can only imagine the dark visions this lantern has illuminated.

 This one was an easy build. A $20 wooden lantern from Michael's which I stained and painted with rust colors, an LED candle from the home decorating store, and a ring handle taken from part of a horse handle. This piece was more expensive than most to make, coming out at around  $65 in parts. But I like it. Should make a fun costume prop.
Hooray, someone bought my recently posted brass syringe.I has a happy. :)
Simple Steampunk goggles by HerbertW
Simple Steampunk goggles
After making several complex goggle sets, I thought I needed something lightweight and simple for non-event wear. I like my other goggles, but they do tend to be a bit heavy and weight down my hat. Both magnifying arms swing up and down freely.
Injector by HerbertW
Its been awhile, but I finally felt inspired to create a quick two night build (most of the time was spent waiting on paint to dry). Its a $3 cake frosting decorator wrapped in thin plastic sheet with a small screw and a plastic tube needle. Plunger is cut from a wooden napkin ring, then the whole thing painted in Krylon black plastic paint, followed by brass spray paint.
Oh lord, has it really been over two months since I posted anything? Sorry everyone! My times been mainly consumed by building my static-powered gatling gun for a customer. Its probably my most complex piece yet. Also added today is an update to a previous pistol design. Hopefully with these out of the way I can go back to work on a proper Lovecraftian piece.


HerbertW's Profile Picture
Phil Bolton
United States
Not much to say really. My real name is Phil (If you're wondering about the username, it was pretty much the only one that wasn't already taken). I grew up in Atlanta and moved to Seattle about 15 years ago.
I've always been the creative type, building models, and doing 2D and digital art, and its only in the last year that I discovered Steampunk, and the idea of creating 3D work.
I've been a fan of Lovecrafts work for since high school, so it seemed only natural to combine the two.

I'm more than happy to do commissions, or even sell some of the pieces posted here. Just drop me an e-mail. My prices are quite reasonable.

Current Residence: South of Seattle,WA
Favourite genre of music: Just about anythign besides hip-hop, rap, and country
Favourite style of art: Fantasy
Operating System: Windows 7 ftw!
