EXAMPLES: Black with candy blue, candy red, candy green flames

Working on a 67 Mustang Hardtop and thinking of going black with multi candy flames, blue, green, red.

Does anyone have any examples with this car that has flames you liked.

If not this exact car.... any examples of other cars with flames in these colors.

Thanks

Take a pic of the car and use markers to design your pattern. Run a few copies and go to town with the designs.

I searched around but didn't find any flames on Mustangs that I liked, at least not candy ones. Did a Chevy truck long time ago with white nose on black truck and the flames had blue and purple with red outline if I remember right. Used red blue green over some Eerie-Dess HOK stuff once on a boat. If you can describe how the colors fit in on your mental picture, I may be able to edit a photo so you can see options.

I also can not find anything I really like on this year Mustang. The car has some sharp, tough fender lines and small surface areas in the fenders to carry flames.

I may just keep things subtle and do some blue ghost flames on just the hood. Iíve laid some out and they flow well as the hood is flat, no turn signals or hood scoops.

Thanks for the reply!

I was thinking the same thing, BUT, if you were to keep the flames subtle I think you could design them over the top of everything and not look to out of place. Keep the licks to the large size and make them flow over the body lines.
I did stealth flames on my '95 pickup using pearl blue powder in a clear carrier. You do not see them unless the sun is hitting them at the right angle.
On the lid.

The sides. These go down the whole side of the truck tot he back of the cab. I don't think I have ever gotten a good picture with the whole side showing flames at the same time...

I have not yet tried to lay anything out across the fenders which I will try to do.... but if flames are not done right they look like you know what.

I've seen some very nice blue over black flames on motorcycles, subtle, not overpowering and they look pretty easy.

I'm looking forward to doing this.

Nice job Astro, I like the ghosting own your truck......
