Tardis Tea Infuser Detail by Amazon-Butterfly Tardis Tea Infuser Detail by Amazon-Butterfly
This is my absolutely tiny brass and sterling silver English Police Box tea infuser. ( I love Doctor Who and have always wanted to make my own Tardis. ) Other than the tension fit lid and base, the whole piece is cold connected with tiny hidden rivets and hand patinated. (H) 2 1/2 in x (W) 1 1/8 in x (D) 1 1/8 in

Even if it not for sale, I admire your workmanship and the craft it produced. Simply gorgeous.
This was literally more fun to find than the Death Star tea infuser.

Congrats on your finished masterpiece.

Rivets, seriously? About how many? That's amazing!
I just started with metalwork, and with Dr. Who, but I was too indimidated to try to start a TARDIS. This is such an adorable idea though, and so well executed! Is it actually functional? I'd be scared to drop this pretty thing into boiling tea water....
Also, what kind of paint is that? Is it a chemical patina or actual paint?

Super, super cool....:)

If I remember correctly, there are around 30 tiny rivets holding the little guy together. It was a chemical patina for sure, but I think I picked it up from Sculpt Nouveau before I started making my own patinas. ...And while it would hold up to the heat, sadly it is not food safe. So glad you like it!

Very cool...I havent learned rivetes yet, so right now my only option to join metal is soldering....i'm looking forward to learning rivets. :) And the patina is lovely, i'll have to check out Sculpt Nouveau.....

Thanks! :)

I always wanted a vanity landline phone that would be cradled in a TARDIS phone box--not life size, just big enough to hold the phone--that would make the dematerialization noise for it's ring.

But, is it useable? Or would the patina ruin the tea??

Sadly no, it is not usable... I wish. I've have thought about making one in silver eventually, but I wanted this one to look old.

Thanks for the interest!
