 Hello everyone.

Been playing with tags and made this one for Tag Tuesday..HATS.

I ran out of ink so had to print my hat in black and white
and colour..

Just used my markers and did some quick colouring..

Added some metal look detail, smudge it all and wiped it all off..

The background was fun and used a micro glaze technique where you rub it on, then add ink and it resists..

It did work but I think paint would work better, I will put that on my to do list..

Added glossy accents to the camera front of the hat..
and this is about where I smudged it all and wipe the dots off..

Pretty happy with this after adding tags and sentiment quotes from some papers and of course cogs and wheels, you have to have cogs and wheels it is the rules..

And there we go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow with something different and hopefully interesting.

Super tag, lovely colour mix and images, great hat. As for the glaze, I have wiped it off so many times, so I sympathise. Great end result though.

I think I have only used my micro glaze once, I love the results you got for your background with that technique, great coloring and yes you have to have cogs with it!
