Re: plaster dip and cowls


Do you mean PLASTI dip?
If so...then yes.
All of the custom cowls/suits that I have have been Plasti-dipped at one time or another if not by me, they by the person that originally made the piece.
Personally....I love the stuff.

I'm "upgrading" my Morris 89 cowl and am going to Plasti-dip for the first time. I have a previous (new) thread that some fellow bat-brothers gave advice to. I'm going to do it the same way I used to paint models and use a cardbard box enclosure so the spray doesn't go all over and I can control it. I also plan on having the cowl on a covered manniquin head mounted so I can move it around. I will post my results. Good or Bad. Spray thin coats. Good Luck

Drew,you don't really need to worry about over-spray. It goes on much thicker than regular spray paint. It's more dense,so you can control the spray really well. :up

Just do it outside or a very well ventilated place.

You have to use the spray if you want to get good results. try not to spray the stuff when its hot out. The stuff will just about dry as its coming out of the can and it will build up to an almost gritty like finish on the surface.
