Default Painting detailed bodies-flame effects etc

Hi i've painted a few bodies before but only one colour designs. I was wondering how you guys get your bodies so good, flames etc. i have seen the posts that say draw design on the outside but what do you do when you have done that, mask it on the inside? how do you get the awesome flame effects and lightning etc?

thanx

mike

Once you have drawn the design out on the exterior, mask the inside with tape and use a light to see through the mask and cut out the design. Once ready to paint, spray a light coat of color to outline the edge of the flames with orange and then fill in the rest with yellow. Back your colors with white or silver, then paint the rest of the body.
