Sorry - i'm just now seeing these questions!
I used the small ovals that came with the Wilton set - the hat is the size of a real cowboy hat.
The rim takes several days to dry.
The accents were made using a mold.
Thanks and enjoy!
that's so neat
Would you mind telling me if you have any tips to be sure it doesn't crack?
I am making one in a few weeks and im very nervous about elephant skinning and cracking. Its for my sisters 21st birthday and you can imagine i want it to look perfect
it looks like u did 2 different ways to do the brim.. one you placed it over another hat with sara n wrap and the other way u just found a way to hold up the sides. so if i place it over another hat to get the brim shape how do u keep that bump in the middle from being there. would i like put a piece of something over the hole of the hat ??
