    I have a question on this figure....

    What is (& how to paint) the arm banding

    This figure has banding on the arms. Is it metal or cloth? It looks like metal but the bows at the elbows are confusing me.

    How would you paint these arms?

    Kevin. They could be contrasting cloth tape, or even tape made of metal threads. I'll post an illustration or two for you tomorrow.~Gary

    A lot of what I've seen shows either gold or silver thread tape/lace decorating the sleeves. I also would not rule out a contrasting color of fabric tape/lace.~Gary
