The Professor's Patented Steampowered Perambulating Command Chair

For the legs I had in mind something like the tipods from War of the Worlds. While making the bockpit the polystyrene ball has been sat on a plastic ring. I cut slits into this so the 3 legs would slot in. The 3 legs fit snugly together and are packed out with hot glue.

To give a good surface texture the legs are painted white and then stained with burnt umber, this is rubbed back slightly with a soft paper towel to give a nice texture.

The legs are given detail with layers of card and bits of plastic to make pistons


Once in place the machine looks a bit plain so I've added lots of cables and tubes as well as funnel's exhausts. All from bits of scrap I have in my collection. The clear tubes are filled with fairy liquid and plugged with brass rods which then slot into the sculpture.
