    I'm not really a fan of artificially distressed hats (or anything else, for that matter), but I've seen quite a few and I sincerely think this is one of the best. The "staining" isn't nearly as heavy-handed and/or obvious as most I've seen, which gives it a more naturally-attained appearance; the random staining on the brim helps to sell the effect. Nice work Tim!
     
  2. Thank you Al. I like when things occur naturally as well. I tried to keep that feeling on this. So after the first firing, I spent time thinking through, the final work. I just wasn't out to blaze a hat, I was carefully painting my masterpiece. Thanks for the like and words.

    This is not an Alley Kat hat ... but it belongs in this thread because Tim did some fantastic ribbon work on it

    Somewhere in the hats life someone put a horrible ribbon on it .... Tim returned it to glory

    Funny thing - only the “before” photo initially loaded for me, so I was thinking “hmm, that’s Tim’s work?” Sorry, Tim, I should have known better, the “after” is fantastic.

    I say keep the center crease!

    Just texted a birthday wish (yesterday) for Tim, and found him finishing this breath-taking, thin-ribboned beaver 100 beauty! It's a silverbelly felt with silverbelly finishes, ALL hand-done by Tim's golden touch...

    Tim also has a wonderful interactive portfolio on Instagram, and you do not need the phone application. Simply Google search: #alleykathatco for a view only, on portfolio.

    This hat looks DELICIOUS!! He's not always here on the Lounge, so for those who wish to immediately reach Tim, his email is: Alleykathatter@ptd.net
