A Batarang is a bat-shaped throwing device/weapon used by Batman as a non-lethal ranged attack alternative to firearms, which he rejects outright due to the circumstances of his parents' murder.

Variations of Batarangs include those that can be opened and closed (presumably so they can fit into Batman's utility belt), those that can be explosively charged and those, which are electrified. A grappling hook made out of a Batarang and a rope was common until Batman began using an upgraded grappling hook device. There are also the remote controlled Batarangs and other specialty Batarangs.

This version of the Batarang I purchased off of Etsy from the seller Awesomegiftshop.

This resin casting of the Ice Battle Batarang from Batman and Robin and is very well done. I am very happy with the quality of this Batarang.

I did some clean up work on the resin casting of this Batarang. I also did a little spot filling and a little sculpt work on the bat-ears and pointed tips of the Batarang.

Here is what the Batarang is looking like so far as I am working on cleaning it up.

I gave the entire Batarang a once over to make sure everything was looking as it should. Once I was happy with how it looked I washed the Batarang in hot water and soap.

When the Batarang was dry I primed the batarang with grey primer.

Of course after the primer had dried I found some spots that I was not happy with so I again did a little filling and sanding to clean up the spots in need.

after some work on the Batarang it was time to give the Batarang a really good wash and when dry I will see how it looks.

I was happy with how the Batarang was coming along. I went and painted it with a base coat of silver aluminum. It is nice and shinny but the paint bubbled and got crispy in spots.

So some more work has to be done on prepping this Batarang so this will not happen again.


*I thought of leaving it as is and take some blue ice paint and highlite the areas that messsed up to simulate ice on the Batarang.


I sanded the entire Batarang down and gave it a nice wash. I double checked it to make sure it was smooth and the way I need it to be to retry to prime and paint it.


OK! After wiping down the Batarang with rubbing alcohol I went ahead and primed it. No bubbles or anything so it looks like reworking it did the trick.


I now have painted the Batarang with a silver chrome paint. I brought it inside to dry and to keep anything from getting on the paint.

Again no bubbling or anything so I am very happy that reworking the Batarang worked.

The Batarang is almost finished.

How am I going to display it? Well I purchased a shadow box and painted it ice blue and made a background. The Batarang is going to sit on two pegs that I made. The back of the Batarang has two holes I drilled to fit onto the pegs.

This is my completed Ice Battle Batarang mounted to the display board that I made.
This is what the finished Ice Battle Batarang looks like inside the shadow box.
This is the Ice Battle Batarang before placing it into the shadow box. I hope you like it as much as I.
