This is the original Bat my son brought home from school. The first thing I said, “Can I decorate it”. He said, “sure mom”. “Hehehehe, giggle! It was really cute! So last night I turned this bat into something that looked more
The bat is of a plastic material. The bat was painted black and underneath the chipping black paint, was pink plastic. Yeah, that’s right, a pink plastic bat!!
First, I scraped all the chipping paint off and roughed up the surface so the paint would stick and not chip again. I painted body with black acrylic paint. I then painted the mouth and eyes white for a base color. Next, I painted the tongue a light pink color and added some red metallic paint to accent the tongue and teeth with blood. Then I added some Silver Leaf/ Rub-n-Buff to accent the body, wings and head. I then paint the eyes and added some glossy accents. The last step was to cover the bat with Mod Podge.
This is how it turned out!
This was a very fun project and my son loved it!!!
