OK we have all seen it done BADLY!!!! You know what I mean. Take some common object and glue some gears on it maybe add a little paint and WOW its steam punk.....NOT!!! LOL The question and the Challenge is can this be done well to make a visually interesting piece of art. So here are the guide lines (note I did not say rules). 1) The object should be something easily found by most people. 2) using mostly gears (or gear shapes) decorate it, so it is cool and interesting. 3) have fun. Lets show people just what can be done by adding gears to something hehe.
I am going to copy this over at the Brass Goggles Forum so people over there can join in the fun, and yes I will be listing something it the next couple days that is decorated with Gears but still came out very cool.

OK I finally list the Bottle that gave me the Idea for this. Here is the listing.
of course I did a little more than just glue some resin gears LOL. A lot of the work really does not show up in the pictures. I have always been fascinated with the look of the Antikythera Mechanism and I tried to get the same look of layered Gears in this Bottle.
