How do you mean, fade into another color? That is done like youy said, with light spray.

You have the right idea about the flame fade out. Start on the area where you want the color to be the strongest and sucessively work away from that point one light coat at a time with the overthinned color. Try some test panels first as some colors do not respond well to alot of overthinning.

Oh I forgot to say do NOT sand between coats or you'll ruin what you started.
