Occasionally I like to try out new things and practice my skills on different stuff, this piece is the end result of that. I found a Six Flags Superman (probably Animated Series era) cup topper at a thrift store, and have had it for years. The original (pictured in a comparison pic) has a really dodgy, overly bright paint job, and his face seriously lacks detail. I always knew I wanted to repaint it, but it always got pushed back. Finally, while recuperating from surgery I had the opportunity to sit down and repaint it, and I kinda liked how it came out.

An incredible repaint, now it looks like a cold-cast porcelain statuette!

Great work and proof that you can polish a turd.

Actually, Mythbusters already proved that a few years ago.

Thanks! Haha! Yeah, it was a pretty awful looking collectible. I almost left it on the shelf it looked so bad, heh.
