The trousers were the first to be glued and sewn onto the dog; shirt and jacket came next.
Before painting the hat, I applied molding paste to close some openings and even out the surface. Then I applied 3 coats of color, one titanium white, then 2 coats of zinc white which made the hat look pretty white. Once dry, I applied a strip of blue vinyl from which I had cut out the stars. This was glued onto the hat, then glazed with polyurethane to withstand harsh weather conditions.
