Painting the Top Hat


Today my project transformed.

Black Hat

Black Hat

I started to see my SteamPunk Top Hat look like a Top Hat and less like a multi-colored toy. I applied two coats of black paint to the foam and rivets and quickly it started to look like metal pieces that had been riveted to the hat.

In the picture to the right you can see me painting my hat with black paint.  It is really cold here in Texas right now, so I was wearing my penguin hat from SeaWorld.  The penguin’s name is Benjamin.

So my ears are warm, my hat is starting to look cool, and it is the first day of 2015.  Did I mention that I stayed up until Midnight last night?  Yes, I rang in the new year properly.
