Publisher Comments:

Flame paint jobs have been around for decades, adorning everything from hot rods, motorcycles, and pickups, to tool boxes and refrigerators. Flames are a great way to make a beautiful, personalized statement with an air gun and paintbrush. However, the styles and techniques involved in painting flames are constantly evolving, and in this newly revised edition of How to Paint Flames you’ll discover all the latest tips and tricks to create every flame style imaginable.
 
Author Bruce Caldwell, with the help of some of the best painters in the business, leads you through every step in the flame painting process. At the same time, the book provides inspiration to help you determine which style is best for your project. You’ll learn how to create traditional flames, as well as variations such as tribal flames, ghost flames, pinstripe flames, and those incredible-looking realistic flames. There’s also a new chapter detailing the styles and techniques for cool-looking scallops.
 
Painting tools and techniques are covered in depth along with dozens of tips and tricks that will make your flames stand out; you’ll even learn how to apply low-cost flames with a paint roller! If you’re ready to paint your own flames, How to Paint Flames is the first tool you need to buy.

Synopsis:

Custom paint jobs are more popular than ever, and no form of custom painting is “hotter” than the flame job. The newest styles, tools, and techniques are described and shown in this newest edition of the best-selling How to Paint Flames. This book explains how to design the best-looking flames for a particular vehicle, how to transfer that design to the vehicle, and how to apply the paint. The process of flame painting is broken into major steps so that the reader can go as far as they feel their skills and confidence will allow.
