I just had to make another top hat and the plan was a shabby chic one --- Oh dear I think I may have wandered right off track on that idea lol.
I made the hat out of a foam camping mat using the pattern from Lost Wax - link in previous top hat post.
After fiddling about cutting and gluing the pieces together I covered the entire thing using screwed up tissue paper. I then sprayed it using navy, dark red and bottle green colour wash and finished it off using black paint randomly. I used a cat and raven diecuts on the side. I broke up a couple of skeletons and randomly placed them round the brim. I set about positioning 4 complete skellies, one on a wooden ladder. I then painted roughly over them all using the black paint. I then mixed up some polished pigments in a reddish brown and a gold and dry brushed the entire project. Fabulous for a Halloween decoration - a bit early I know lol.
Now for pic overload - and I mean overload - SORRY! Thank you for dropping by ad I do hope you call again real soon.
Hugz and love always xxx
