How to paint Hot Rod flames, my way.

:twisted: I posed this in another thread under the General topic, it's better suited for the tips column .

Here's a link to a how to that I posted a few years ago on another board, David Lee saved it to his Fotki album and has been kind enough to let me share my tutorial using his album, if you click on each individual pic there you can read the text explaining my flaming process. Since I've done this how to I've fine tuned my technique and I will be coming out with a new and improved tutorial soon, when I get it done the Model Cars forum will be the first to know.

Thanks

Brian

That is so AWESOME!!!!! Thanks for showing how it's done. I'm going out to buy an airbrush soon, so if you, or anyone has a tutorial on how to mix paints, let me know where I can learn how to do airbrushing.

I agree - that's AWESOME. Thanks for sharing that with all of us. And I'm personally appreciative as I've always been somewhat ham-handed at flame painting - thanks Brian!

Brian,

Thanks for the tutorial. As luck would have it, I have been scribbling flames on my notepad at my desk today and then I see this!

I have some test subjects that I plan on trying this out on and wanted to say thanks for the inspiration.

Way too cool!

But what about pinstriping around the flames? Does anybody have an idea?

Technical pen and india ink is what I used. Requires it to be done freehand....

Why, Stefan? You have a better idea?

Well Jarius, actually no, i haven´t... thats why I asked :wink:

I tried with an ink pen, but it didn´t worked well.

I also have a brush like Steve has, but never tried it really... :oops:

Last year I met a swedish guy, Claes Beck-Fries, you may have heard or read about him, he makes awesome pinstripings with such a brush , so I bought one.

For straight pinstripings like on trucks I have very nice KFS decals which work well.

I usually use a very fine brush and Polly-Scale paints for outlining flames. It's water-based paint, so if you make a boo boo, just clean up the line with the tip of a #11 blade, after the outline paint has dried.

I outlined this Revell diecast with Polly-scale orange

These flames are shadowed rather than pinstriped, again with Polly-Scale blue paint. Some of our lysdexic club members asked me if these were waves,,,they just couldn't see the flames.

Great tips. I used RPP Hobby's paint mask for these flames on my wifes model. Have yet to clear them.
