The lower part of the brim is covered in wool tops to represent the sea and the rest of the brim is covered in texture paste and shells. Once it was dried I sprayed it with yellow ink to represent sand.
The crown is surrounded by beach huts made of paper and painted. The top is painted green and topping it all is a lighthouse.
I have been decorating a summer hat for a display at our art group. We were asked to decorate a summer hat and or thongs (flip flops) for our annual display.
It has been a slow process but I am pleased with the results.
