I have been busy with a series of hats for a personal project.
Here is the last one!
I give you Apple Mac meets Steampunk!
I had fun with the thought of what Apple's branding would have looked like steampunk style...like a step back in time!
To create this one, I did the same process with the metal foil as per the silver hat, but then I sprayed it with white spray paint and sanded it back a bit to show the silver.
Then I added the hat band with a cog to hold it in place.
Next came the white embellishments which I had to hold in place with painters tape while the glossy accents dried.
I felt it needed a little more after this so...
I found some of the DIY straws and some micro beads to make it a little more funky!
Here we have the final hat...front, back and sides!
These hats have been incredibly rewarding to make, lets hope the final project they are meant for goes ahead eventually.
In the mean time, I am entering this in the 3D section of Sandee and Amelies steam punk challenge for March which is "Gear it Up" as the whole top and rim of the hat has embossed gears on it as well as at least 6 dimensional ones for good measure!
