This is my third approach to the fire and the first of which I am happy This is just a practice for my actual helmet project. Canvas: foamed pvc 25cm x 35cm Airbrush: iwata hp-cp 0.3, paasche talon 0.5, iwata lph-80 (just for black base color) Paints only urethanes: black base for background, white base for details, blue candy, turquoise candy. Tools: homemade curved shields Time: ~2hrs First layer: iwata hp-cp 0.3, white base. I create every shape in this order: hot concave curve first (using the shield), than freehand convex line. I try to place each line in one move. There was no sketch, no guide lines. I follow my intuition and some reference pictures: First color layer: paasche talon 0.5, blue candy over white: Second layer (white). I try to stay within blue flames, but not exactly follow them: Second color layer: turquoise candy over whole fire: It looks like smoke to me, but even so, I like it I did not want to overdo it, so it's finished.
