Eldar Firehawk - Painting lava (learning)

Ooohhh..... failure. Tried to start with a yellow base to make really hot lava. Don't do it like this! Trust me. I am now on it again starting up from red- I have reached orange now and must say -that is a real pain(t) in the ass-color to paint by the way. Worse than Kinda frustrating right now. I will make a break and get some sushi.

The skulls on the other side did become nice though- I think I can be proud of those at least.
