The closest tenuous thread I can tie, is to the spring on the top right hand side, is that enough? :)

Several base coats in various shades of gold and bronze to try and get it close to brass and then I heated it a little to make slight blistering. All of the bits and pieces were glued on and then I started the painting using Burnt Umber as a base and then dry brushing with Iridescent Bronze by Golden. The circular piece on the top is meant to represent a compass and is made from a large brad with a matching sized dome. I had a compass stamp almost the exact size so stamped it on 300gsm paper coloured with Antique Linen distress ink.
It looks incredibly heavy but I can honestly say it's all made of plastic except the brass wire spring and the base of the brad! I am so very pleased I made this, I love it and may even attack my iPad next!!!
Thanks for looking and I'm sorry my muse took liberties with the brief this week.
