First painted the black. Then taped over the entire bottom of the drum. Drew the flames using a cardboard template I made. Cut along the lines and peeled the tap in the shape of the flames. Painted the yellow, then the orange and finally the red. When everything was dry, I peeled the rest of the tape.
