Base, let dry, stencil, base again with different color, let dry, peel stencil, clean it up if needed, clear

its great that you want to get into custom painting however it is really such a broad topic and to teach you all the ins and outs of it is going to be much too long for a forum. a good place to start is subscribe to airbrush action magazine and from there they have many books and videos available to get you started. for a quick how to, mask off the car with vinyl transfer tape. draw out your design, cut it out with an xacto, spray your color then go in with an airbrush an shade and highlight the drips or splashed area to make it look rounded or embossed like a drip would be, dropshadow and clear it.
