Commissar Cap Warhammer 40k.

Bilde
I just finished my second commission hat this year, a Commissar Cap from Warhammer 40k. The one ordering it gave me a lot of freedom regarding the style to make, since there are several version and few really good reference photos.

First off, I needed a pattern. This is the front and top of the hat. 


Then I traced my pattern over to my support material (cardboard) and covered it up with fabric. 






With all parts covered in fabric it is time to put the parts together. I had a high focus on making the seems pretty on both outside and inside of the hat. 


Ready to stitch up

Red ribbons will hide some of the attachment points. 



Top is being attached.

And another red ribbon is added. The brim is also made with a cardboard support bade covered in black lacquered fabric.

So all of the parts of this costumes is now done and ready for paint. See here for build tutorials; Chest plate, leg armor, pauldrons, helmet, Shield and bracer



Worbla needs to be primed. To get a smooth surface you need about 10 layers of gesso or a thick layer of wood glue. Since I wanted a rougher surface for my "steel forged" armor I didn't have to prime so much. And this time I even used a spray filler (mostly for cars) in two layers. For some details I added glue and gesso to even out imperfections. 




Then I spray painted all parts (this saved me a lot of time). I altered by spraying dark grey metallic and misting silver and gold over that as a baseas a base. Several metallic hues gies more depth to your paint job. 

So many techniques.
Then it is time for details, weathering, battle damage, hightights and clear coating. 

First up I painted all teh gold parts with a brush. And took my dremel and added battle scars.

Here you can see on the right the same thigh with weathe…
