Brim Block

After taking inventory, we needed more hat and brim blocks for an upcoming production.  The milliner, Molly Trainer, and I made three blocks of various sizes.  In this technique, I carved  insulation foam to the desired shape and then covered it with a plaster sealant. This created a pinnable, but sturdy form that was ideal for stretching buckram.
