If you get a chance watch that show. Like any airbrushing you will have to find your way and creat your own 'style'. Practice on everything. Even the garage wall!

Check this out!
Mikes shop is 15 minutes south of my house. Been to his shop a number of times, heck of a guy. On that note, yeah true fire is 14 coats and alot of time for the average joe. Practice practice practice, you can do anything you put your mind set to do.
