I'm getting better at this. I swear, it's just spray cans and cardboard.

I think I'm seeing some interesting possibilities here. ShortCuts are down to $1.50/can, and it's basically 1 can = paint for one shockie.

The trick is: Let your masks shift slightly in-between steps, about 1/16", this creates highlights.

Almost done. The plane is just a Shockie Extra. Next, I'm going to do a Bipe like this.

This can only get better. I'll have to work on some new masks, and I need some more colors of Krylon. But, I think I've proven that it blends pretty well on fades, and that's the important part.
