AIRBRUSHED MINING HARD HATS.
Once again, this year I was very privileged to be asked to airbrush some custom painted miners hard hats. The hard hats were to be painted in mining scenes for the Qld mining health and safety conference. This was recently held over 3 days at The Star Casino on the Gold Coast. AIRBRUSHED MINING HARD HATS.
THIS YEARS CONFERENCE
2018 marked the 30th anniversary of the mining conference. Each custom painted hard hat was to show artworks from the Qld mining scene to celebrate.
There was a total of 6 custom airbrushed helmets. Included one specially designed custom hard hat for Simtars and one helmet featuring CFMEU.
The completed custom airbrushed hard hats were auctioned along with a blank miners helmet donated by Alison Arts that the winner can get customised to their liking.

Each custom helmet needed to featured at least 4 artworks from Anglo America, Glencore, Peabody, CFMEU.
Each airbrushed hard hat was also to display the Mining conference’s anniversary logo on the hat in pride of place.
It was quite a challenge to fit the amount of artwork needed onto each hardhat with such a small scale canvas ( in a very small timeframe ).
The aim was for them not to look squished, so with the “polaroid: design and coal piles on each, the mission was accomplished.
Each custom hard hat was matched to the set.
This years airbrushed collectible hard hats were all signed, dated and uniquely numbered to create a collectible unique one off set of items.
The auction as usual was a great success and all proceeds made from auctioning off the custom helmets were for the ‘Mates in Mining” charity ( suicide prevention)
