One of my Orochimaru (Naruto) costumes:
The white snake designs on the kimono were painted with DecoArt SoSoft paint. In a couple of photos you can see the full design across the back.
Kuja, from Final Fantasy IX / Dissidia:
I painted all the gold trim on the bolero jacket and the silver trim on the straps around my waist and hip. The bias tape on the bolero was originally either yellow or beige, and the bias tape edging on the pleather waist straps was black. I went over all that edging with Jacquard Lumiere to make it metallic.
The gold border design on the buttcape was a combination of satin-stitch embroidery and Lumiere paints in a gradient blend.
I also used Lumiere to paint the shoulder pauldrons, the little chest and back belts that hold the bolero shut, the detailing on the front and back waist strap anchors, and the "buckle" and toe on the boots. However, it takes way more layers to get a solid coat on non-fabric surfaces.
I did this as a commission for someone. The red flames and the yellow swirls were painted DecoArt SoSoft paint.
