Ye ole mechanic glasses by Spiked-Fox Ye ole mechanic glasses by Spiked-Fox
Old and used steampunk mechanic/engineer glasses.

Frame made from absolute scratch using metal from cans, itsy metallic bits from an old TV's circuitry, metal wire of various gauges, flux & soldering wire, and burnt fingers.
Worn out and coloured with heat, polished with a rotary tool.
Ear tips created from dipping the frame tips in liquid latex.

Lenses cast with Crystal resin coloured with a few drops of greengold vitral paint.

Not sure if I'd ever try that, would depend on one thing:
Do they function? XD
*like using that resin stuff, can you see well enough, or are other steam-punk materials better for it than others?

If you make sure the surface of the resin is perfectly smooth, it's clear enough to see through them like through glass. Mines are too tinted to see properly through though.
