Testing out the fit of the goggles.  Goggle glass is 2 magnifying glasses that I pulled apart to use for lenses - covered in plastic here to protect them until I was done.

A back-lit clock - played with this idea but didn't end up including it.  Clock is a scrapbooking embellishment painted in 'antique gold' paint with a battery operated tealight candle behind it.

Painted the whole hat with 'lamp black' acrylic, then dabbed Jo Sonya's burgundy and gold paint here and there to get the old, rusty look.  Metal patches I painted with different metallic gilding pastes.
