First up you will need to find a good piece of material like a heavy duty Kleenex.. Drape this over your model with a piece of plastic like Saran wrap under it to protect the model, then spray with water lightly. this will cause the tissue to droop. When you are happy with the result coat it with a diluted solution of white glue. Elmers works good mixed 50/50 glue to water. Let this dry, then paint what ever color you choose. When dry remove the under coating of plastic, and reposition the tarp.

The only thing is, Be careful when you paint it because you will get paint on the model.
