Sooner than I expected, started a new historical hat.
This time and inspired by the Palácio da Pena's construction period and its founder - King Ferdinand Saxe Coburg und Gotha - planned my next hat to be around 1860s which means a simple cylinder shape and a small straight brim.
With already some experience from the past two hats I constructed, this one is made from cereal box cardboard because of its lightness.
For the "body" I used this very simple "formula"
|some tries for the head size measure|
For the brim I used normal cardboard because wanted some stability once it's, afterall, the base of the hat. Also, to fit within the head, thought that something thicker would be better.
Thats all for tonight folks, thanks for visiting and following.
