Limited Run 1:1 Michael Keaton Face insert for Batman Cowl

    This limited run is now started and will only last until the end of this month of April.

    Since we almost have 10 on the list, we'll call it $85 shipped hoping the last two spots will get filled.
    Please remit payment via Paypal to: forpoopinsilly@aol.com
    Please make sure to include your RPF handle and write "Keaton" on the note section.
    International buyers please include $30 for First Class International or $50 for Priority Mail International shipping.
    I suggest you don't skimp on the shipping and go with priority mail international since it's faster and I've never had any complications with it yet, but it's your call.
    With either method, I cannot be held responsible once it's been mailed off since it will be in the hands of each country's mail system.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Some folks have expressed interest in me doing a small run of my Keaton face insert for 1989 Batman cowl.
    This was made for a specific '89 cowl, so I cannot guarantee the fit on any other cowls as I only have the one.
    I made a cast for another member just last night and figured since I have the mold out, I wanted to see if it was worth it for me to get a run going.
    I rarely do runs due to my busy schedule, so please only post if you are truly interested and have funds available.

    This will be for white rotocast resin casts.

    If I can get 5 people on the list, the price would be $100 each shipped within the US.
    If it goes 10 or over, I can drop it down to $85 shipped within the US.


    International buyers would need to pay for shipping, but I'll discount it as much as the average US shipping cost.

    *Those showing interest must have the funds ready and be able to pay once the list becomes full. I only accept Paypal payments.
    I'll even start the list going with a member who already paid for his cast ;)

    I don't know the maker since the commissioner of the piece just gave me one for the project. If I recall, he may have mentioned it may have had some lineage to the original, but I'm not an expert at this to either confirm or deny. It's the one in the above picture, I can take more pics if it helps identify the piece.

    Arrg .. I'm in .. but I wouldn't want this to not fit inside a Coofunkcurly cowl. Anyone with this face cast and this cowl can confirm?
    If it doesn't fit, it's just gonna be another project in a box in my basement! :-|

    I don't think anyone can chime in on the fit yet. I'm fairly certain it will fit, but since this will be cast in roto resin, either heat or sanding can help aid the fit.

    Well, we have our minimum of 5 to get this started. If it gets to 10 paid orders at any point before the end of the month, I'll credit the difference to those whose already paid.
    I'll change the post to a run and post payment information on the first post.

    Thanks all!

    Revised shipping information on the first post. You can choose either First class or Priority mail international via USPS.
    I'll put you on the list.

    Added another member to the list, so 2 more spots left to drop the price to $85 shipped within the US.
    I think I'll cap this run off @ 10 since I want to get them cast and shipped within the month.

    In fact, for all those on the list that have not yet paid, feel free to send the payment @ the $85 price ( international, please add appropriate shipping cost).
    That way I can get these cast and off to you ASAP. Payment and shipping info is on the first post.

    Thanks all!

    This thing looks terrific. Payment sent!

    How do you guys plan on posing this? Do you just push material behind the face cast in the cowl .. or you fix it to a styro head or something?

    Thanks Bigturc! I think stryrofoam heads or the like would work well. Mine at the moment is just backfilled with material since I haven't had a chance to modify a foam head yet.

    Just a bit of an update, I only had enough material to cast a few of these, but I ordered more and should arrive toward the middle of the week. I also purchased the shipping boxes which should come tomorrow afternoon.
    I'll ship the casts that are ready down the line according to who paid the earliest.

    A couple of spots are still open. Once this run is done, the mold goes back into the deep abyss of my garage and who knows when it will come out again ;)

    Awesome! Glad it arrived safely Littlemuseum and I'm glad these are fitting the cowls since that was a worry for some.
    Looking forward to seeing some of these painted up.

    These are still available and this may be the last weekend I have time to cast these up so if you want one, let me know ASAP after Monday the run is finished.

    Thanks all!

    I use acrylics, both opaque and transparent from the Createx line, but any acrylics brands will do.
    I mix my own colors, so I can't say what specific colors to use, but definitely seal between layers.

    I try to always spray clear coat after each layer of major color, shading, mottling and stippling. Just a light thin coat.
    That way if you over do it with a color layer, you can remove it and still save the underlying color layers.

    Is it just called clear coat spray? Need to know what to ask for.

    I accidentally sent one of our members two of these and he kindly returned one back to me.

    So if anyone is interested, I have one ready to ship for $80 within the US.
