Finding a guide to drawing flames on a car is one of the best ways to learn. If you are familiar with custom flame painting then you also know how much attention a killer set of flames can attract. Especially on your custom chopper, motorcycle, car or truck. Flames look awesome on other things too! Like a custom made barbecue, motorcycle helmets, welding helmets, the list goes on.
If you want flames on a car, you have a few choices to make.
Painting flames is a very common technique to increase the awesome factor of your car, and they are not difficult to do if you follow a few simple techniques. If you are not sure where to begin, first look at other paint jobs and see what you like or what inspires you.
Then, go with the idea you like most. Keep in mind that the size of your flames in relation to your chopper is fairly important. You don’t want them to be too large or too small. Also, you can use different colors of flames other than the tradition red, orange and yellow coloring. Purple is really cool and not very common. For a good resource on choosing and understanding colors and contrasting colors you should get a color theory guide. There’s a lot of them out there.
Using a brush to paint flames is for advanced painters and is not the way to go if you are an amateur. What you should do is use an airbrush to paint flames. It’s much easier, it looks really good, and you can fix mistakes much easier, especially since you will be using tape to help guide your work.
The best advice anyone can really give you is practice practice and practice.
