John,

 

Awesome Paint. I have a newbee question...since the paint for the flames is laid down over the pink, it leaves them looking "3-D", or like they are sitting on top of the pink coat. How do you get the edges to lay flat?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dan........after I lay down the rest of the flames........I will give everything a clear coat........then I will wet sand the clear coat.......then I will lay down another clear coat.........then I will sand again and then give a final clear coat........and everything should be smooth as glass.......thanks :)

@Dan as you are (newbie)  Also doing like what John has done makes it matt as 1,  (if you wanted a 3d or raise look to a flame you put a clear coat between the color and flame to help raise it.

Can the flame masks be used more than once or are they a one and done type of deal?

Thanks! I was asking because in the past I had tried some two tone paint jobs and there was always the definative raise to the second color. I never bothered with "blending" it in, but never thought to ask "how" either!!!
