Was kinda bored. Went Toy status and painted some letters on three 8.5 inch x 11 inch pieces of canvas. Gesso’d, spraypaint, acrylic, and marker.

Don’t let the title get to you…Here’s the story…I was at work and I saw someone with a blank white(quiet the the off color jokes Beavis) hat and was inspired to make something of it…so I asked I could take the hat and do something with it….and so we have this posting of me creating the hat…

2) I masked off any of the areas I didn’t want to get paint on…

3) I painted the hat twice with a coat of white acrylic paint and I used a heat gun and air dry in between coats and after…

4)Then light spray painting 5 different colors (midnight blue, medium blue, light blue, 2 pinks) on the surface after the hat
air dried well and then again…more heat and air drying…

8 ) Before the unmasking…I outlined with black….

9) And Wah La…
