    How do you make it look like one color fades into another? is it a special tip or just one color over another? help would be nice

    I'm sure there are other threads on this topic.

    Its quite an easy thing to master, and there a few ways of going about it.

    I basically just go over one colour with the other and hold my around 45 cm away from the wall ( I think that translates to like 16-17 inches) while I'm doing it. As you progress futher into the fade move your can further and further away from the wall.

    Alternatively I sometimes hold my can against the wall and rotated so the paint hits the wall and a sideways angle.

    Just play with paint.. its pretty logical
  3. Dime sack, if you're just starting out painting you should just get a couple of cans and go sort your basic questions in the most proper and fast way, experiment.
