Yes, you read it right, MID 16th century hat!
Of course that the idea was there way before finishing the late 16th century one, but as I only have two hands... ;)
|D. João III King of Portugal|
|Henri II King of France|
|Charles IX King of France|
For the first time, hat wise, I took my friend - the bust - measured its head and with thick paper (80grams) made a sort of headband. On this headband, all around it, I glued little strips of the same paper.
|Looks like the Staue of Liberty, right? Lol!|
The same procedure on the top, ending with something like this
Using the upper brim as border to make the "roof", I glued some crossed strips of that same thick paper.
Then it will be only a question of covering all these crossed "paths" with pieces of newspaper glued in layers and see whats next!
|Already looks like a crown, awwwww!|
Thank you :)
