Steampunk Daily: Technology: Steampunk Workshop Flat-Panel LCD Monitor

The Steampunk Keyboard looked terribly anachronistic sitting in front of my Dell 1907FP flat panel monitor and while I hesitated to tear open a $300 monitor that was still under warrantee, art must be served.
Inside I found that the whole thing was encased in steel sheet. I rejected the idea of re-making all of the pieces in brass and went looking for some paint that would give a nice effect. I settled on a nice gold metallic from Rustoleum with a thin coat of brown Krylon Crystal Color to give it an aged look.
ot too bad! The finish is a good match for the 19th Century gas lamp arms that I bought from Sequential Glass. It was, in fact, these arms that inspired this project. As soon as I opened the box they came in I knew instantly what I was going to do with them.
