Default How to make flames?

How do I make my flames look good like all th otheres I've seen?
Does anyone have plans they could share so I could print them off? If there are plans that I could use how do I apply them to the canopy? Thanks to anyone who can help!!

Shoot me an email, I can send you a jpg file of the popular flames. All you need to do is resize and tape out. I also sell custom vinyl masks made for what ever type of canopy you have. All you do with them is peel, stick and paint.

Yours turned out sweet looking. It just proves that with a little paint and one of my masks or patterns any one can shoot a great canopy. Dont let anyone tell you that painting a canopy is hard.

Very right, but in the olden days I had to use fine-line tape by hand or at best blends. Using todays grahics software and cutters has really opened the door to doing what used to be unthinkable wild design much easier than by hand. And for those who can not afford the cutter & software the pre-made templates are a blessing!
