Sintra Gauntlets - Pics Pgs. 1 & 3


I just finished my bat-bracers. I made them from Sintra. The fins were made from wood however. :wink @ mrbats

EDIT: New pics of these completely plasti-dipped on page 3 of this thread.

Check 'em out! :bounce

First, propped up on a couple drink cups... lol

My only concern with these now is the hard-water stains that were left when I pulled the sintra out of the water... :grumble

Now, to make my boot spats from the Sintra... :bounce

Re: Check out these bad boys...


very nicely done. the fins look huge on those, how long are they? those spots could prolly be covered with a blast of plasti dip.

when are you going to do mine?

Re: Check out these bad boys...


The front edge of each back fin is 4 inches, and the base of that same fin is 2.5 inches long. I wanted them kinda big, some of my favorite comic incarnations of Bats have overly long bracer fins.

I never thought plasti-dip would stick to sintra(or any kind of plastic). I'll have to try it out on a spare piece first. The word I've been hearing around here is that plasti-dip really just sticks to porous surfaces(which plastic usually isn't). So that's why I didn't think of it.

Have you tried sanding out the stains with a very fine grit sandpaper?

Nice.
use Duplicolor vinyl and fabric changing spray to lightly spray over those water spots.
