Blue Fire Maibox

Jim C

look good. if you want a little tip for your blue a 3 layer system. do 1 layer and candy it with a mix of coablt blue and a touch of violette to give it a slight purplish blue color. do you second layer a candy it slight lighter using just cobalt then your 3rd highlight layer using oriental. you will have way more depth and pop to the fire.


i always appreciate your pro advice, you have helped me so much. i need to try adding the purple.
i am doing something similiar:
speed blue
cobalt blue candy
power blue
electric blue candy
hawaiian or oriental blue candy

i have to experiment with the right depth of cobalt as a last coat to do a ghost real fire blue. last time i did it it came out too dark.

also...i have something that has been based with spi paint for over 4 months. should i scuff it and rebase or shoot a thin coat of spi intercoat, then clear?
