Default Flame paint masks?

This weekend I plan on getting a body some paint "spray cans" and maybe try one of those basic flame paint masks.
I never used one,are they pretty easy?
My question is look at this body for a example
I see theres like a black outline around the flame,most flame jobs have these kinda makes it stand out better,do the masks have this,or is that some custom painting.The mask will be just the flame its self,no outline that peels off?
Can you guys post some basic paint jobs done with masks,I wont be using a airbrush so im looking to go pretty basic,Thanks

I got some from Spaz Stix and can tell you that, yes the only come with the flame. No outline. You would have to run your own pin stripe for the outline on the flame. Or may I suggest using two colors like red and orange. Do a fade with the red aimed at the tips of the flames and the orange every where else.

After I had finished using the flame mask for the first time, I really wished I took the time to do the outline (soo tedious).

Good Luck!
