Steampunk is an art, fashion and culture movement inspired by the industrial revolution. It mixes modern ideas and technology with those from the past. Steampunk materials are often things you would find in an old science lab or industrial lot. Lots of wood as well as copper, brass, steel, iron and other heavy metals often comprise many of the pieces. Glass, old-fashioned light bulb and watch parts, clockwork, rivets, cogs, levers, springs, gears and other pieces of machinery are also popular materials. Leather is another Steampunk staple, often sewn crudely together with thick stitches and heavy cord.
