Up in Flames: The Art of Flame Painting
Todays Modern Techniques & Designs
Author: Tim Phelps
Flame painting first lit up the hot rod world more than 50 years ago-and its still burning strong. At the heart of the art are a handful of innovators who have pushed the tradition to ever-greater heights over the past half-century-and these are the artists profiled in this book. Up in Flames introduces readers to the flame painters who best represent the talent and inspiration that give this particular art form its power, and whose stories best illustrate the evolution of the flame job. Each profile features full-color illustrations, many examples of an artists range, and the painters own thoughts on style, career, and craft-all framed by an introduction that traces the flame job from its infancy to todays modern techniques and designs.
