    Re: Fade

    Don't know about anyone else....But In my few experiences...I just start at one end with the darker color....spray till I get about a third of the way...letting a little overspray kind of creep toward the middle. Then I change color, and start at the other end doing the same technic. It kinda blends by itself. Then cure. Takes a little practice to get the blend right, but after your first go at it you'll fiqure out how much or how little you'll need the next time. Good luck!

      ok , this is a secret so dont tell anyone different ways of doing , the way i do it both colors will be cured at the same time so you have to make sure the powders are the same type.
      one way of doing example red and purple valve cover
      hang cover upright position adjust gun so you have a very small powdercloud .start covering part from bottom going up
      but keep the gun pointing downwards coat up to just past half way . at this point if the powder cloud was small and if you kept the gun pointing downwards the uncoated section should be almost free of any powderdust .
      now remove from rack and turn it around (uncoated section down)
      change color in gun (be careful not to put too much powderdust in the air close to your part )
      now start from bottom again with second color always pointing the gun downwards coat until you averlap the first color
      (amount of overlap is up to your taste) now put in oven and wait . results should look like this (the white is flash reflection)
