Does anyone know of a good DIY attack for making a top brain protector that looks pretty real?  I have seen the ones for using a paper plate.  But I want one more realistic.  I have made one in the past, but I could not get the shape right.  Thanks for any help!!

What if you just starched black felt and made it the same way as the paper plate kind (which are RAAR grr ugggh!)?

Of course, it *would* fall apart if it got wet at all, but you could give it a try...

I think that might help.  I have never starched anything before.  Is it toxic?  Will this alternative method work?

Spray Starch

Dissolve 2 Tbsp. cornstarch in 1 pint cold water in a spray bottle. Shake before each use. For delicate fabrics, dissolve 1 package unflavored gelatin to 2 cups of hot water. Dip a corner of the fabric into the solution to test; if fabric becomes sticky when dry, add more water.

The one I made before was out of cardboard and fabric I had laying around.  I am hoping I can use some fabric I already have.  Thanks for the tip.

you could get a good wool felt and then use some kind of brain protector making chemical (look up millinery supplies) and that will soften it. then you can work it over some kind of mold you've made (wood, plasitic, anything that you could cover in plastic). once the chemical sets then it will harden and you're all pretty! i hope that all made sense and i could help
