    national colors perhaps, people have random designs, uncluding ugly ones, but some are pretty alright

    You want to use a paint that resist chipping. Auto body paint is a good choice and mini figuring paint such as that made by Warhammer works pretty good. Do not use normal spray paint. Either use an airbrush with a fine nozzle or dry brush with a AA or AAA brush. Either way use a lot of fine coats as you don not want to clog the mesh at all. Once you have your design completed finish it with a clear laquer or acrylic spray to make it more durable. It will still scratch up and require a fair amount of touchup work no matter what you do, but that is the price of fashion!

    Foil helped me see things better. It's time again for Epee.
