I am looking for a few color / technique recommendations for painting medals and gold braids on models....
Currently I have a Yarrick model whose medals and ribbons and such I've underprimed white since I cant decide on a finishing gold-ish color for them that will look good when it's dry and coated with a ploywood stain and fixative.
Well, braids are often gold, but can be white, in some cases.
If you want it gold but not metallic, i'd recommend adding some graveyard earth to each coat. So start with graveyard earth + shining gold (20%-80%)for the base, then a graveyard earth + burnished gold highlight (same percentages in the mixture) and finally a burnished gold - mithril silver mix (60%-30%) to give it just that bit of gleam!
Good luck, show us how it turns out!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I've seen military braids that are all different colors: golden yellow, golden metallic, silver metallic, but also red, green, blue, almost anything but pure white, black, brown or gray. It needs to be an attention-getting yet strong color, so ixnay on the inkpay.
