Proximo,how do you keep those cowls from deteriorating.I would love to get one but I am worried I would have to sell it before it starts going to hell.

Re: Clooney cowl, a second sculpt/version was used in the film.


I can only slow down the process by taking good care of them. Here are some basic tips that I use myself:

1. Never expose it to sunlight. Even reflected sunlight contains UV rays. Tint your windows or use UV protective glass.
2. Avoid flourescent light sources as they emit UV rays too. LEDs are the least harmful followed by incandescent (tungsten) lights.
3. Keep it enclosed in a case or display cabinet to protect it from dust.
4. Try to maintain the temperature and humidity at roughly the same level all the time.
5. Wear gloves when handling them. Oils from your hands are very detrimental to foam latex.

Re: Clooney cowl, a second sculpt/version was used in the film.


you forgot to to say clean it, because when you get one of these type of pieces they have never been cleaned since production


also, nitrogen gas inside the case can help extend its life


they can last 30+ years if well maintained

moisture, uv, dust, copper are all killers of latex

And what’s ten years? Well, it’s roughly how long it takes to put in ten thousand hours of hard practice. Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.

no matter what you do it will die eventually and turn back into powder or goo

no matter what

taking care of it will just lengthen its lifespan

Todd, don't let it discourage you. You will only worry about it at first but the excitement you get from owning such a piece will put those thoughts to rest pretty quickly.

If you do get a cowl, or any other screen used piece, take the best care of it that you can, display it and enjoy it as much as possible.

You bet I will. I enjoy the hell out of my replica pieces and not to mention when friends and family come over, they love to take pictures and just want to know everything about it.It literally brings the inner child out in adults and that alone is priceless and a great feeling so I can only imagine what it would feel like to say this is the real deal screen used piece.My search continues and hopefully one day I will own a piece of histroy.

Yes. But it's not one of these, it's a Clooney Panther cowl. The cool thing is that the cowl they donated is number 39, the one I had in my collection was 38.
