"The Top-hat Weirdo" is a handmade, hand-sculpted, hand-molded, hand-cast and hand-painted original lapel pin, crafted by eccentric artist Brian A. Bernhard, for Embrace the Weird.
The mini sculpture is cast with Smooth Cast 65D from Smooth On, painted with Vallejo acrylic paint, and protected with 2 coats of Liquitex clear acrylic gloss varnish and 2 coats of Winsdor and Newton Galeria Gloss Varnish.
The lapel pins have 2 steel butterfly clutches in the back and are attached with super strong gorilla super glue!
Each one is hand-painted, which means, there are subtle variations in the color and the brushwork making each one unique! The one you get may be slightly different than the one in the photo, but I will have done my best to keep it in the same wheel house.
