Steampunk Top Hat and Witch Hat

Going to add these three new miniatures to my shop this evening 8pm UK time. 

I'm ever so proud of them, and especially love the top hat.

Here is my Folksy shop:

The hats are not real leather. I have produced my own fake leather using some of my own tried and tested faux leather techniques. The result is a fabric that represents leather well, but has the advantage of being thin enough to work with for miniatures.
I will also be producing sheets of faux leather for sale so that other miniaturists can enjoy working with it too. I can produce almost any colour too.

A plain and simple witch hat. 

Made this storage box from card before i developed the faux leather. However i did use my faux leather for the straps. It is non opening.

Steampunk inspired Top Hat. The hat and the stand will be available as one. 
The hat can be removed from the stand.


  1. LOVE the steampunk hat Nikki!!! Fab!!!!!
