I wish to convert my Tau commander so that he has ribbons flowing off of him. I know, poor description... Its really quite difficult to articulate =/
I'm wondering what would be the best method of doing this, and what materials to use. Being that i'm a general novice at a conversion like that.
If anyone knows what im trying to say... and knows how to elaborate it far better than I, please do so. Also, if you have suggestions, feel free. I'll probably make some sketches when i have the time so it makes a bit more sense...
hmmmm i would say either model it with greenstuff, or use paper (painting over it)

........you only need one to go twice "
I recommend using the foil off a wine bottle for this sort of thing, its easy to shape, easy to paint, and give it a watered down coat of pva and it wont move (not sure if varnish will do the same trick, ive never varnished b4)

Prog rock FTW!
there is a nice little tutorial on how to make greenstuff banners over on the drunk dwarves homepage:
Other than that you can make them of paper or tinfoil (as already mentioned) or from actual cloth. Make sure you get a natural fiber (wool, cotton or silk), cut it into shape and then soak it in watered down PVA glue (water it down until it has the consistency of milk). After a while (once the glue starts to harden) you can give it nice wavy shapes and then wait for the entire thing to harden over night. It is a bit messy but has the best texture of all the options.
