The next set of color palettes from images I’ve made for you, is inspired by steampunk pictures. Steampunk is a genre of sci-fi which is based in a steam-powered Victorian-like society. (I’m in the middle of reading my first Steampunk novel!) The steampunk inspired color palettes here are from the following photos:
- Machine With Cogs and Gauges
- Roman Numeral Clock with Brass Pipes
- A Two-Balloon Airship
- Big Clock with Gears
- Brass Stringed Instrument
- Leather Hot Air Balloon
These color schemes are based on brass, bronze, leather, and wood with lots of cogs, gears, and other machinery as well as fantastic airships. The colors found in these color schemes feature the browns and oranges of brass or copper as well as the greens and blues of the tarnish which forms when these metals have been exposed to the air a long time.
The pictures for these color schemes are from a variety of sources – pixabay, Karen’s Scraps and pictures I’ve pieced together myself.

I have more color palettes (many from images) to inspire your artwork and coloring. You can also visit my pinterest page to see all the color schemes in one place.
Have you ever heard of steampunk?
As a new weaver, instructors encourage finding photos or images for color inspiration. I will reference some of these in future projects.
Fantastic! Hope your weaving goes well.

Great palettes. I’m sewing (machine embroidery) some steampunk style baby clothes for gifts, and really appreciate your insight. Thanks
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing how you are using these.

Thanks for your encouragement Ana!
I enjoyed looking at the artwork, and the pallettes really helped me see better how to create works of my own. Thanks.
Thanks so much for your feedback.
