Looking for some samples to get ideas. Wondering what other colors aside from yellow would look nice. I really should get a color chart. The other problem is red is dark, yellow is light. I like keeping either the top or the bottom light, and not mix the two.

Thanks!

you'll find the contrast/transition to be important.

you'll want neon type red, not dark/rich reds/maroon/crimson
since they turn black in a blue sky.

Nice job on the splash around the windshield jab! I'm thinking blue or silver might be the ticket. The blue is nice with orange (floresent). I did paint one for a friend in red, he loved it.

I might try floresent green, with white or red lettering with color change paint on my birds.

Thanks for the feedback.
