Greetings all -

This subject may have been raised before but I can't find it in the thousands of T & T posts.

Some aircraft have a very well defined, sharp delineation between the bottom and top colors, say sky blue bottom with OD top. some others have a soft edge where the bottom color sort of fades into the top and there's no definite line between them.

I'm sure there are several methods of controling the sharpness of the edge and I would like to read some of the differing techniques.


PS This also applies to camo.
