DIY- Escalera de caracol victoriana- Victorian spiral staircase

Desde hace mucho tiempo he deseado una escalera de caracol hierro, ya que puedo imaginar un montón de posibilidades para ella, una vieja biblioteca, el estudio de un pintor o un fotógrafo victoriano...

I've been desiring for a long time a victorian cast iron spiral stairs, because I can imagine a lot of possibilities to make with it: an old library, the study of a Victorian painter or photographer ...  

Para hacerla he utilizado un abanico de madera calada barato

To get it, I used an inexpensive fretwork wood fan.

Desmonté dos abanicos y seleccioné sólo una parte del dibujo

I disassembled two fans, and I used only that part of each bar that you can see on the picture.

La madera es tan fina, que os recomiendo cortar con unas tijeras pequeñitas con mucho cuidado.

The wood sheet is so thin, that I recommend you to use a little scissors, and sand every step carefully.

Hice los agujeros con un taladro y uní dos escalones para cada peldaño con el fin de obtener una escalera más fuerte.

I made the holes and glued each two steps face to face, in order to obtain stronger stairs.

Tomé la referencia de la altura de cada escalón de una escalera en miniatura que tenía, y calqué la forma de la contrahuella en un listón de madera de balsa que corté con tijeras también.

I took the high from a miniature stairs that I had, and I drawed the shape of the riser on some wood strips, Them I cut with the scissors.

Pegué cada contrahuella a cada escalón.

I glued every rise on its step

Corté parte del dibujo de las barillas del abanico, para hacer los laterales de los escalones.

I cut part of each bar fan to design the side of each step.

El eje es una palo de brocheta

The shaft is a brochette stick

Para hacer el pasamanos en espiral, primero soldé los barrotes a a un alambre más largo respetando el mismo ángulo.

To make the stairs rail, I soldered several short wires to a longer one with the same angle.

Para hacer la curva helicoidal, sólo recomiendo paciencia y soldaduras resistentes.

To make the curve of the staris rail, I only recommend patience and good welds.

Hice pasar por cada escalón un barrote y en el extremo coloqué una bola de bisutería.

I put each rail through the hole in the corresponding step, and I glued a glass bed in the end.

Y así es como hice la estructura. Estas escaleras son preciosas en color verde bronce, o blanco, pero he decidido pintarlas en negro con pintura en espray, y añadir restos de óxido con marrones, naranjas.

And that is how I did it. These stairs are very beautiful in green bronze or white but I've decided to paint it in black with spray painting , and add rusty remains.
To get that look, I painted with three colors, pumpkin, brown and sunflower.
