I Love Rusty things

Even if I have to make it myself.
Playing more with the New Steampunk Telegraph plate from
I created this rusty book. Stamped all the gears into Sculpty Epox
Then rusted everything up.
Bits and pieces come from an old cash register.
Added a layer of mica over the text.
So much fun to create!
