FINALLY after tons of requests, and mentions of a "hat" design or piece of "artwork" I finally made The first Shantastic Shine Hat attempt.

It is a flat bill size 7 1/4 fitted hat. The back is currently white but could be dyed/painted a solid color if requested.

I handpainted this bad boy a few nights ago.

HOWEVER, my next step WAS to make this or the next one GLOW/UV activated.... and guess what I DID! I can now create ShineHats that react to the UV lasers like the Shantastic SHINE BOARDS. I am beyond excited to create a few more for the upcoming festivities I plan to attend.  They are then glazed in a thin coat of a special uv reactive paint to react with laser. These hats will glow for a few minutes in a dark place if left or worn in direct sunlight for long periods of time. This shouldn't effect the hat or design. It is based off of the same idea as the stars that children can put on their ceilings to glow at night.

Now you can have your own person glow on the go!
What kind of hats would you like to see? Do you have any ideas or themes for me? I would love to hear some input.

OH one more thing! I made a video to show HOW it glows but it's kinda "Selly" so I didn't want to directly put it on here... if someones interested check it out on my website in my signature. It's pretty nifty  Cheesy

"I can make that!" has been the start of more misadventures than I can count Cheesy

Thank you! I am working on one this weekend that is all NEON based paint. So not only will it glow but the shine should glow the neon colors with it. I am so excited. I'm just not sure of what all designs to use on the hats just yet. Any ideas ANYONE?
