Re: Painting a yellow to black fade...
The paintwork looks dandy!
I'm SURE your 5yr old is REALLY happy with it! lol
....when trying for a fade, you can use card-stock spray shields, taped to a stick and held by hand, or taped in a relative position, away from the surface...
A lot of fun work can be done with rattle cans, but you will get far more options with better quality paint. ..even the acrylic artist paints and a cheapo airbrush from HF..
Give it a try sometime!
