Running hats are great for sunny day jogs and I wanted to give gifts to a few runner buddies. I began with plain white running hats from Target.

Using an X-Acto blade and a steady hand, I cut tape into thin strips and tabed off the brim of the hat.

I also taped the top part so that the paint did not get up there.

I used an assortment of practically antique acrylic paints to paint the shapes that the tape lines created. This Blog has tons of examples of beautiful and inspired color palettes.

After waiting for the paint to dry* I carefully pulled off the tape. For these first few beauties I did not “finish” them with any kind of fixative but I’m sure there is something out there for fabric.

On the back velcro-bit I added personalized details.

The finished product came out great!

*I have made the mistake before of being super impatient about seeing the finished product and ended up creating a catastrophic mess. Patience is a virtue in art!
