That's right and is the other reason why I use Fusion, it molecularly bonds to plastics.

Re: Bat emblem?


I have done it one of three ways. In the early days, when I had hair on my head. I used to pour it in like brin mentioned. This requires the resin be a very thin viscosity otherwise it will not flow evenly around the edges, but rather settle with a slight wavy edge.

Later on, after all muh damn hair was gone, I got the wacky idea of making a mold for the yellow. Now I can just snap the yellow in place. The nice thing about this is that on close inspection, the edge is always the same, as is the surface, on close inspection.

What this requires is however that the recest area be cut deeper, so a bit of leg work is involved. The yellow must be thin enough to make for a nice raised ring and bat. But this is by far the most time-consuming, tricky method I have done.

Also if you really want to go that xtra mile, get the more expensive high-temp epoxies, bake the pieces out, then use automotive (not hobby store) enamel (not acyrlic - not pearlescent) paints that will give you a hard-looking metal like look and feel on close inspection, and not the look of plastic.

At that point, even metal wouldn't make much difference. I found over time I liked the emblem and belt to be shiny with everything else being flat. But obviously this is not quick batta-boom batta bing thing..

Awesome info Bob, time for me to do some more experimenting.

Oh and Bob, you're so good at adding hair to your silicone heads, you should be able to do the same to your own head. :happy

trust me, I tried to punch hair in my own head, and it hurt like hell... I also found that while armourall gives batsuits that nice "sheen" it also shines your head up real nice. :rollin

Hey Guys, I have a complete Clooney outfit, and the emblem is built into the latex chest and it is all black, Janty has a great idea with the clay, but what is the best way to do this to latex, painting wise? Thanks

Well probably mask off the areas that don't need painting and airbrush it.
1)Airbrush the yellow,2-3 coats let dry completely and talc it to remove the tacky surface.
2)Like Jant says place the clay over the yellow areas up to edges bat and outer ring but not over it.
3)then airbrush the bat and ring black.
You can also get a clear gloss for latex as well to give it a nice little shine.

If you need to know where to find latex and the clear flexible gloss just me know and either i can or another one of these very talented batz can point you in the right direction :up
