Brass Clock Parts Kits:

There are lots of steampunk gears and products out there, but there's nothing quite like adding REAL clock parts to your creations.  So just for PCA 2019 I've assembled a limited number of kits to go with this Steampunk Dragon class.

Your kit will include 1 lb. of metal (mostly steel and brass) parts recycled from broken clocks. It's upcycling at its coolest!

Your kit will have:

  • at least a dozen clock hands (used mainly in making the wings)
  • at least 10 assorted gears, (from ¾ to 1 ¾-inches in diameter) many are still attached to arbors, which can help in embedding them in your dragon or they can be removed
  • an at least 4-foot length of brass or steel chain
  • a variety of other clock bits and pieces, large and small, that will inspire your imagination in their uses!

You can purchase the Steampunk Brass Clock Gears Kit at my Etsy shop, Keepsake Crafts Create.
