    How about BOTH colours. Figure out a nice hot-rod paint scheme with those two colours.

    I could do a blue true-fire over a black base. Away from the fire it would look black in the shade and deep blue in full sun.

    Let me see if I can find something I did many years ago

    I'm liking the blue with the flames myself. I need to learn how to do it myself.

    The blue flames is a 6 step kandy over base process using automotive paints.

    1. Start shape of the flames in white basecoat
    2. Spray over the top using Cobolt Blue Kandy not too heavy
    3. Using white basecoat again. Fully form the flames
    4. Spray the second coat of Cobolt Blue Kandy. This will darken the first layer providing depth.
    5. Using the white base fill in the highlights and hot points of the flames.
    6. Spray over this using Saphire Blue Kandy

    If you look at real flames you can see is a definite edge to one side of the flame and they are curved, so get yourself a good template for using as a freehand shield.

    Oh and lastly, use a good real-life reference as well. It does help!

    The 'orange' flames uses a similar process, but has 4 different basecoat and 4 different kandies, one pearl, and 9 layers!!!

    Hahaha ... nah ... you sense someone who attended some airbrushing courses!! Of which one of which was th true fire course ... I paid special attention in that one!

    If I could be satisfied with my own abilities I would airbrush for a living, but I think it would have to be when most of my children have moved out or my wife gets a job as I'm at point where the outgoings and pretty mich equalling the incoming and bad decisions (ie too much debt) are meaning that I have to stay in my IT career.

    However, there seems to be a down turn in the market so if the worst happens I make just make the move/transition.

    I understand that all to well. As I'm in a similar situation myself. I'm having to shut down my trucking business because of dept and high maintenance costs.

    Crap. That sucks. I'm in Canada, and it's s**t here too. Keep hearing how good it's going, how many jobs there are...yah, okay. If you don't mind being part of the disposable work force...just started job hunting after a year off due to to illness, and it is not looking too shiny...
