Post can anyone explain ghost flames

i am painting my vette deep ruby red,base clear, i want to put a flame on it but i dont want them to stand out like a sore thumb.if i apply the base coat and then mix a tad of black to the red base and mist in the flames let dry and topcoat???

You could do it that way, or just add some pearl to some clear and spray your flames, then c/c the whole car.

Well there are a couple of different ways to do them. I just did my first set and I will share my experience. I found you can do it with candy paints which is actually called ghost flames, or you can use pearls or tinted base for what are called phantom flames.

I did the phantom flames. I did a purple base and used red and blue pearls for the flames. It is just like you said, except I mixed pearl with clear and dusted the flames on. I used red for the body and blue for the tips. It was not that difficult, but you do need to practice figure out how much pearl it takes.
Here is a link to some pics. Go to My First Album.
