On Tuesday night I was in the studio trying to come up with a Steampunkish looking ball cap to wear. I found a cloth ball cap at the craft store, purchased a few sheets of fun foam and some Beacon Fabri-tac Permanent Adhesive and I was off!
Here's what I came up with...
All Geared Up Ball Cap
Cloth Ball Cap
4 sheets of Black Fun Foam
Beacon Fabr-itac Adhesive
Assorted Metallic Rubs
Tim Holtz Gadgets and Gears Die
Here's how I did it....
Cut multiple shapes from the foam and apply Fabri-tac to the gear shapes and adhere them to the cap.
Completely cover the hat first with a layer of gears. overlap the gears with smaller pieces filling in any blank spots.
Once the gears have had a chance to set...go over the gears with assorted metal rubs. I used Guilders Paste in Antique Gold, African Bronze, German Silver and Viva Decor Inka Gold's Silver.
Last, I used an old paint brush to fill in the hard to reach smaller areas.
Done... This project was inexpensive to make. The cap was purchased from Hobby Lobby for $2.99, the Fun Foam was $1.49 a sheet and the Fabri-tac was $10.99...I had the metallic pastes.
Fun Project...Think of other cool die cuts you could use on your cap...
Thanks Everyone for coming by!
