My first set of flames!!

Hi guys & thanks for all the info so far.

I had ago at flames today. It is my first set ever!! Now it is done & cleared I can see some mistakes but hey, im happy for a first try.

I used Alsa stylin base coat for the first layer. Then masked up the flames & put a high aluminium down covered by a purple candy. I might put a second set of flames in silver but im still thinking about that one.

Any advice will be welcome

That is what pinstripes are for.

Nice job. Your an "official" custom painter now.
We all remember our first flame job and keep pic's of your work as you progress and look back occasionally to see how far you've come.

You might want to use the blue or green fineline tape instead of that one.
They have a smoother edge and stick better all around.

Check into some transfer or "R" tape for masking. It's WAY cheaper than regular masking tape and comes in various width's.
Transferite and Perfectear are a couple of good one's.
