Custom Flame Paint Jobs - Paint Your Own Flames

Lacking Skills? Limited Experience? No Problem. With The Right Equipment, You Too Can

Photography by

Flames are just cool. They're the signature of a real hot rod. But obtaining a flame job you can actually be proud of generally takes skill, some artistic ability, or the money to hire such talents. We had none of the above, but in lieu of those qualities, The Eastwood Company is now offering all you need to produce respectable flames on your own. A new addition to the variety of reusable traditional flame stencils in the Eastwood catalog is the Mickey Harris Hell Fire stencil kit. A multiple award-winning custom painter, Harris created the Hell Fire kit to help produce the type of flame job that replicates actual fire. This current trend in custom paint is a bit more involved than the standard traditional flame job, but we figured we'd give it a try. The included DVD, narrated by Harris, helps to breakdown the steps and gave us the confidence to believe we could actually pull it off with no prior experience. Eastwood also carries a selection of airbrushes and the mini-compressors to run them, plus a line of custom paints; everything we needed came in one box.

The Hell Fire flames look best over black, and we happened to have a discarded black hood from an old project car to experiment with. Read on to see how much of a mess we made.
