Default How to paint a fade out or sunburst help!

I want to spray the front of the flat deck of an rc boat and get it to look like its a sunburst or a fade out. I thought I would paint the color over the gray primer I put on to cover damage I fixed and sand the portion toward the middle of the boat to fade out. Is this the way to make a fade out than polish and clear coat? See pics of nose gray primer where I want the fadeout. Thanks Ron

I don't think I want a fade. I think I want a burst. Maybe 6-8 pointed sections. I guess I could tape it off and try to paint than sand. Including a pic. I want to paint this front section red but kinda fade it. Any thoughts? Thanks Ron
