Also you'll get acquainted with some of the materials you need for your first airbrush. During this lesson we are going to exercise the masking technique. Have a lot of patience and start over often, you'll get the hang of it.

Flames black

oneTake a pencil and draw loosely in thin lines the outline of your flames.

Next, fill in the background with black paint, make sure that you dilute the paint with water.

Don't spray paint on the lighter parts of the flames.

Set the air pressure of the compressor at least 1.5 bar.

attention Don't worry if you get too much paint on the white parts, just use some white paint later to fix this.

 

 

  Fire with red two Start airbrushing with magenta the top of the flames, leave some white around the edges of some flames, on other flames let the magenta blend a little into the black background.

Again, remember to keep some parts free of paint, that's where the yellow will go next.
tip  Allow the paint to dry between two paint jobs.

It is better to apply a little amount of paint often then trying to get the color you want at once.

Alternate between black, magenta and yellow if that creates better results, just experiment.

 
  Fire yellow

three Carefully examine the result so far, if you did get to much paint on the parts whom you should have left white, you should fix that by applying some white paint before you go any further.

Now for the fun part, fill your airbrush with yellow paint, start filling most of the whites you left unpainted before, remember to leave some white seeping trough at the lower parts of the flames.

You probably haven't achieved the result you are looking for at this stage, just use any of the colors used before to enhance the areas to your liking.
