yes it is a bit uniform and i will be toying around with different sized pens dowl etc
it is a compromise between real and styized,as to get a true fire effect takes layering of candies over white [as you all know] which was an option denied me by the customer wanting white only
i think this can be played with and improved on,the technique of useing three dimentional objects as shields although not new and i would not claim it to be,doese lend itself to creating some very nice seamless sharp to soft effects
i personaly like this effect and hopefully my customer will as well.
im going to use it again on othere jobs as its fast effective and can be built upon ,take a closer look at some of the smaller flames and they give a very good 3d effect that could be used for other aplications!
