    I assume it's one of Gunslingers own hats

    Yeah that's one of mine.

    It's not dry paint though - it's basically just very potent colored chalk. It doesn't come off onto things, but you catone it back if you go too far by using a stiff paint brush to sort of whisk it off. If you're planning on having a go at it, there's no reason to be scared as you can build up the intensity, but you really need to practice on an old hat or the underside of the brim or so meeting first to get a feel for how it applies to the felt. Just be gentle at first.

    Thanks to you Gunslinger, I finished my SOC fedora. It's not as awesome as yours, (I can't compete with your skills), but for me, it turned out really nicely! I used the pastel dry chalk paint. It's more subtle "dirt" than your hat, but it also has a kind of "been there" look. I can add more if I wish. I'm happy with it.

    I appreciate your encouragement, and help. Thanks Gunslinger. You help make the hobby fun for me.

    So which of your hats did you "dust up", HJJ? Your Todd's one?

    It wasn't my Todd's fedora, I used my Christys of England Fedora. It's a a size larger than my Todd's, and quite light weight, and comfortable.

    Thank You Sir!

    I can always add more "dust" if I want to! Just keep'in it subtle.
