in this instructable i am going to pimp my mini file withe some red hot flame`s , the file was in a pretty good shape but it just looked like it needed an upgrade in sir. Woodster style : )

this is not really a serious project but more something to play around withe your painting skills

Step 1: Sand of the Laqeur

in this step i mounted my file in my drill. i did used some tape to protect the jaws of my drill .

This way i speed up the most annoying part but you can do this by hand

Step 2: Add Some Primer

i used some primer to get the best color`s in later steps .

this step was simple because i only had to shake , spray and wait 30 min

Step 3: Add the Base Color

this step is similar to the last step only now you swap the primer with your colored paint of choice

Step 4: Draw and Paint the Flames

i first drew my flame design on the base color , than i used some yellow acrylic paint to on the flames.

Step 5: Paint the Outlines

i used a special line paint tool to make the outlines of the flames withe black paint.

all that is left to do is put on a few layers of lacquer .

unfortunately my camera stopped on this point ,sorry for that :(

anyways until the next instructable
