Except for a half hour break for lunch and few bathroom breaks, I have been working on this card all day. (I call it Captain Nemo's Communicator.) It has been a real challenge to come up with some of these embellishments but it has been worth it. The eyepiece on the top actually swivels up and I had to make it by hand. I started with a small brass ring which I glued a piece of packaging plastic to, then once it was dry I filled it with Diamond glaze. The arm is a piece of a watch which swivels on a mini brad and a small brass washer.
The "thingamabob" on the side is made from a piece of coiled wire with beads glued on the ends. I then had to insert wires into holes I drilled in the side of the wooden frame because no matter what kind of glue I used the coil would pop off. (I had to fill the beads with silicone and then let it dry before I could stick the coil on the wires.) The bulb is a simple christmas tree light that I wrapped a piece of brass and some wire around the bottom.
Hopefully this is something that Captain Nemo would use to call his home boys.
