|Steam Punk Guitar|
As I listened to Kaja and Carol talk about this asthetic, I wondered what a Steampunk scarf would look like? What would the imagery be? What colors?
"Tilobites" said Carol, "and fossels. Ferns. They were interested in natural science" (in the Victorian age).
"Gears and machine parts decorated with delicate swirls" Kaja told me. "There was a fascination with machines, which were still handcrafted. Every part was a piece of art."
"Browns, earth tones"

Now I am challenging myself to design scarves for Kaja Foglio and Carol Monahan that would express the asthetic of Genius Girl and the magical/scientific world of the Gaslight Fantasies.
This is not it. These are the only gears I could find in the house--lego pieces! But I can use them. You will see.
I have not forgotten my promise to do a tutorial on intaglio printing. I'm working on it.
