    I take it that's it's a reproduction you're trying to crush?

    Soak the cap in hot water, then empty any water out of it, then place it on you head, when it's cool enought. Crush it to the desired shape and hold in place with elastic bands, clothes pegs etc, and when it's dry it should hold its shape.

    ABSOLUTELY DO NOT soak anything in hot water.
    That will ruin any leather. Shrink any wool.
    If you want to shape anything using water, use COOL water.
