The butterfly is glued to a standoff so it sets off of the back wall of the box and produces a shadow. The box is seven inches square.

Video Review: Steampunk Butterfly Kit from Moyu.

I get a lot of requests to do product reviews. I turn most of them down because they just don't fit with my content. It does not make sense for me to review a television or other nonrelated product. Sometimes it is difficult to turn down free stuff but that's the way it works.

Today I am making an exception. The company, Moyu reached out to me with an offer to review one of the Steampunk art kits. I accepted for a couple of reasons. First I like their products. Second, you folks are crafters and artists. I think some of you would enjoy a craft/art kit that is this creative. 

Here is their website link. This is not an affiliate link so I do not get a kickback but I did get the review kit for free.

This kit has over 150 small parts. I had a blast building the kit but it was a challenge for my fat clumsy fingers. If you buy one of these kits be aware that you have to be patient with the build and follow the instructions carefully. If you have a tendency to get frustrated with intricate and sometimes imperfect fitting parts then this is not a project for you. The kit is very high quality but they are using hardware in a different purpose from what it was intended. 

It took me about five hours but I was doing the video while I was building the kit. The instructions say around two hours but I would call you a master kit builder if you get it completed that fast.

They have many different kits so check out the web page and see if one of them is right for you.
