Heya, big mike, Do you use a template for your flames? They all look so uniform.
I'd like to get some templates, but don't know where to look.
Any ideas?? ANYBODY?

Who are you talking to? I do not own an airbrush. I only use cans.

I posted that flame template years ago.

Hot cans.

I (I'm sure others do too) heat up my cans before I spray. I let them sit in a bowl of hot/warm water so I get better pressure and it seems to make the spray finer.

I've heard of that! They say the hot water thins down the paint, and allows a smoother flow.
They claim you can get just as good of a base coat with a can as you with an airbrush, using the hot water method.
Myself, never tried it. Might have too!
Thanks for the input!

If it's boiling water, yes, it will burst. But no one is that dumb to put a can in boiling water. Also, if you don't leave it in the hot water that long, it won't burst.

Turn on your sink faucet to hot let it heat up. I fill up a small bowl or cup and put the can in it. Let it sit for bout 5-10 mins.
