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.
