Use pattern to cut full hat brim (flip pattern at dotted line for second half). Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. For hair, tint 8 oz. fondant dark gray. Add one teaspoon Gum-Tex. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut 50 strands in various sizes from 1/2 in. to 3/4 in. wide, tapering to points. Set on cut side, shape waves and let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.
