So how do you paint an elbow joint or knee joint while still maintaining poseability? I've seen customs for sale that claim this is possible, and wondered how they acheive it.

LMK or post a link plz thx.

Ooalb and Apac, I took your advice and read through the link. I settled on a guide by Jin Saotome. It had awesome pics.

And guess what? It totally works.

See the customs thread for what you can do w/this.
