The Hood - Book 1
The book is the first of its kind and alongside detailed instructions are over 300 illustrations and photos.
The Hood is broken down into three sections.
Section One covers everything you need to know to make a made to measure rubber hood. These include taking measurements, choosing your gauge of rubber sheeting, drafting the sections of the hood, slight alterations for style, tidying up your drawing for fit, creating a pattern, techniques of construction including marking out, cutting, rubberising, laminating, gluing, overlaying seams, pressing and then finally the actual making up of the hood.
Section Two is all about reconfiguring your pattern to create different types of hoods. The section also talks about how one might go about making inflatable hoods and how we can even use our templates for a neck corset.
Section Three concerns itself with accessories and adornment. In the first half things like eyepatches, masks, visors, harnesses, system hoods, horns, ears, ponytails, neck ruffles and panelled hoods may all be made. Even how to sew rubber is talked about. In the second half of the book how we may trim and decorate our work is extensively gone into including appliqué and painting on rubber.
The Appendix includes a troubleshooting guide for areas I anticipate may cause problems.
