    How would I go about makeing a fade of two colors? For example going from black to red? Would I use two different dyes at the same time? Please Help

    You'll need to experiment to perfect your technique, but the basic method is to mask off certain areas, apply powder, cure and repeat.

    If you don't mask off, you can't control where the powder goes because it tries to apply an even layer all over the part.

      Fading can be done carefully by lowering gun output and practicing aim and technique. If you don't like the look, don't bake it, blow it off and shoot again.
      We have done many multicolor jobs and the only time masking between colors works is if they don't meet. The masking leaves large steps in the powder most of the time.
