What you'll do

We'll start by roaming the streets and alleyways collecting random plastic trash and junk (on rainy days you can use some of the excess trash and junk I've already collected.) Once we have enough stuff we'll return to the studio to arrange it into a configuration that looks random yet balanced. We'll then glue all the pieces into place. From here we add different layers of paint to give the appearance of metal. We'll finish our pieces with final touches such as highlights, wires or other unpainted elements. By the end of the experience you'll be able to impress your family, friends and aliens all over the galaxy with your amazing art and fancy human creativity. (Because your finished piece of art is so lightweight I suggest inexpensively mailing it home so you don't have to lug it around with you for the rest of your trip. It will be waiting at home for you to return from your Los Angeles / Earthovision Manor visit.)

Ron

I've been making Steampunk Art for years to include in my Earthovision TV show. You'll see it in the backgrounds of spaceships, submarines, jet-packs, etc.. I've gotten good at collecting trash and junk, in the streets of LA, and turning it into interesting art. There's so much plastic these days so I re-purpose it by gluing it into interesting designs and then painting it to look like metal. My Steampunk wall-hangings look like heavy metal sculptures but they are really lightweight plastic that won't hurt if they fall on you. Come learn to make Steampunk art from a master Astro-Shamanaut and you'll impress aliens all over the galaxy with your fancy human creativity.

More tips

It may get messy so wear clothes that won't matter if they get damaged. Because we are dealing with people's trash and junk you may want to bring antibacterial gel.
