masks are one of the most versatile designs created to date!!
A LIMITLESS array of UNIQUE patterns can easily be achieved using only
5 different shape designs!!
Simply place one mask on, then another can be OVERLAPED over the first,
in any postition and using this method with different sized or shaped
masks from this set, will ultimately create a unique pattern.....EVERYTIME!!!!
You can also go the extra yard and do some shadows and highlights on
the ripped edges much like those in the green flamed bus shown here.
This step can add a lot of depth to your project and while it can be
a little intimidating at first, just pick a side (edge of the rips)
to place the lighter highlights on, and continue throughout your entire
surface, doing the same side on all rips. Then reverse your thinking
and do some shadow details on the opposite side of the rips. Usually,
a very small detail brush will work great for that.
|"Standard" sheet, is similar to the Rips "large" sheet only in that it contains the same designs/shapes, but these are designed for use on SMALLER
scale projects. Will produce the same great results, but primarily designed for use on 1/64 scale (possibly smaller) castings!!
However, the standard sheet may be used in conjunction with the "Large" size sheet to expand the possibilities even more!!!
Every mask has intricate "jagged" edges for a realistic "rip" result.
And they can be used as mentioned above in the "overlap" method, or placed seperate from each other.
"Mirrored" pairs allow you to match the placement from side to side very easily.
There are a whopping 120 total masks per sheet.
Including 10 masks per pair of mirrored sets.
This design is available as Inner AND Outer WITHOUT Film
WITH Film in either inner or outer styles.
FOR THESE PARTICULAR DESIGNS however, I recommend the "NO Film" masks for ALL skill levels,
You really get more "variable" results applying in a somewhat random manner, which is very easily done placing the masks with an exacto blade or pair of tweezers.
Remember, the easy way to choose the masks you need are .... INNER Masks should be used if you want to paint the FLAME COLOR FIRST, apply the mask, then paint the Main body color and remove mask.
OUTER MASKS should be used if you want to paint the Main Body color FIRST, apply the mask, then spray the FLAME COLOR LAST.
