Airbrush artist Rick O’Neal from Newport, Washington, de-scribes how he creates his true fire flames step by step includ-ing the materials used in this article on his flaming mail box.“I’m flaming out a mailbox using two slightly different PPG colorschemes, one on Side A and the other on Side B. Since my maingoal is to demonstrate my personal flaming style, we are skip-ping the steps I took painting the border and the name and willget right to creating some fire.“The materials used are listed here:◊ Bull Dog adhesion promoter◊ DX103 (sprayed once at the start for antistatic)◊ DX320 Prep.◊ PPG’s Orange and Sunset Red pearl mixed inDBC500◊ PPG DBC basecoat reduced 1-1 with DT885◊ Radiance II Candy colors reduce 1-1 with DT885◊ Candy colors mixed 2-1 with reduced DBC500midclear◊ PPG Concept 2021 ClearcoatBefore we get started I’d like to remind you to make sure you thoroughly tack each coat before you move to the next step.1. “On both Side A and Side B, after applying my adhesion pro-moter and giving proper flash time, I mark out the general pathof my flames at random with my mixed pearls.2. “Now that the basic path has been set I’ll start highlightingalong the edges covering most of the pearl lines with Molly Or-ange. That way the edge of each flame is highlighted with pearlover spray giving it a nice glow in the sun.
I continue with the Molly Orange painting most of the flames try-ing not to cover to much but at the same time give it a shadingcharacter. If I see something I don’t like I can ‘swoop’ anotherflame right over it so it’s ok to experiment. Once I’m happy with the way the flames look I again leave it to flash
3. “DMD643 light chrome yellow is the next color I use. It willgive the flame a nice green tint. I try not to over do and just giveit a light mist in the darker areas to lightly fill in the flame body.On side B, I added some Cobalt blue candy over this coat of yel-4. “Using the orange candy, I lightly cover the project leavingsome green or blue tints untouched while concentrating ondividing the flames, setting some back (adding depth) with morecandy coats than others, covering all the dark areas. I like touse my red candy in and around the flames where the pearlsshow through to blend and keep the pearls from over powering.
5. & 6. “DMD639 medium chrome yellow is used to give usour true yellow fill and highlights, starting with the main linesand lightly filling in behind as I go. If I see something I missedor just left behind intentionally with the molly orange, I now fill itwith this yellow7. Three or four coats of candy yellow goes over the chrome yellow highlights.
