Froggie Baseball Cap

Materials:
  • Green baseball hat
  • Acrylic paint: black, white, spring green, foliage green
  • Textile medium
  • Round stencil sponges
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Toothpick
  • 3″x1″ piece of red felt
  • Instant grab glue

Instructions:
  1. The textile medium will turn your acrylic paint into fabric paint. So if you ever need to wash your hat, you can. However, keep in mind that the tongue probably won’t survive and you may need to create a new one should the need arise to launder it. To mix, use one part texile medium and 2 parts paint.
     
  2. Dip large round applicator in foliage green paint and gently scrape off excess. Press applicator onto hat above the bill, gently turn the applicator in a circular motion to make the circle larger. Do this on both sides for the eyes.

  3. While the green eyes are drying, dip large round applicator into spring green paint. Leave some excess paint on this time, then turn and drag the applicator across the hat in random places.

  4. Use large round applicator dipped in white paint and dot two eyes onto the foliage green circles. When the white is dry, use a smaller round applicator dipped in black paint to dot on two pupils.

  5. Use a black Sharpie marker to draw exaggerated eyebrows to look like a frog’s bulging eyes.
     
  6. Dip toothpick in black paint and add the nostrils to the bill.
     
  7. Cut a forked tongue from red felt and glue to the underside of the bill.
