Pink Cowl Batman bust project

Hi Gang,

I picked up an extra Batman bust and will be converting it to a Pink Cowl to go with my Mad Hatter Bust.

A quick review for reference:

I painted it tonight. The color is more like the cowl at the top (Chuck's?), so not a Peptobismal color. I'll post some pictures when it dries. I hit it with some dull coat, so we'll see how that turns out.

Double checking color and finish. Little sanding and posing next to Jervis...

The pink really shows the imperfections of the front face of the cowl.

Pink perplexity
Got a new pink paint last night. I'll get the old paint off and retry it. This is Testor's PINK, not a hot pink, but more Pepto Bismal.

I like the new color better. So much that I cracked open. 1:12 scale Mattel figure and Contaminated that one too!
