Twig and Sinimay hat

Well, I really liked the twig idea so I thought I would continue painting things gold. I continuously asked my roommate if she had any objects I could paint gold; it became obsessive really.

Twig Embelishment

Gold twig embellishment on the Pillbox hat.

New Pillbox and Petal Hat

Well I've been off of this for too long! I've been trying to get hats done for my independent study in order to create tons of hats for the upcoming shows I will be in. Classes start in a week and I want to make two more hats by then!

Here is what I've been making so far:

A larger style pillbox - I will be adding some crazy embellishment
to this, just you wait and see. I'll post the final picture when I'm done.

I'm calling this one my petal hat. It is three structured petals on a small pod. Their are two different color sides to them, if you could not tell in the picture. They remind me of Frank Gehry (I wish).
