dimensional fabric paint (like this) – not included in the kit
clear nail polish – optional
Step 1. PatternCut out your own pattern – a simple triangle and a circle for the base.
Step 2. Shape the hornSew the triangle along the long edge. Shrink and form it over the heat gun – make sure to watch the fabric, when heated too much it will melt and form holes. Instead of trying to form the hot Fosshape with your hands, the best way to harden the shape is to hold it above the heat gun making sure to heat it evenly and let it shrink. Shrink the bases too while keeping them flat, but don’t sew them on yet.
Step 3. LEDs preparationWith needlenose pliers curl up the LED legs and bend them 90 degrees so that the loops sit flat when the LED is facing up.
Step 4. Battery holder
Grab the battery holder, a coin cell and the base and attach the LED using conductive thread. Make sure the polarity of LED and battery are correct. If everything is wired right the LED will light up.
Step 5. Sew the baseSew the base to the horn like shown and add a little tab of Fosshape and Velcro to the opposite side in order to keep it in place. Paint some clear nail polish on the bottom of the horns to isolate the conductive thread from touching the metal of the hair clip. Alternatively, you can fluff up the small scraps of Fosshape and fuse them over the stitches to protect the conductive thread.
Step 6. PaintEmbellish the horns with a pattern of your choice using the Tulip paint. It will take about 4 hours to dry. The Fosshape disperses the light quite nicely.
Step 7. Hair clipHot glue the hair clips to the bottom of each horn. Alternatively, you can sew the finished horns to hair clips or a head band.
