smooth the edges if possible and use a paint with a glossy finish. clearcoat afterwards.

Carpet just the very outside, and paint the inside. Cut the carpet along the outside following the edges of the flames?

nice job on the cuts man. carpetting might be a little crazy, but i'd try and get a trace of it on another sheet of paper. from there try and outline somehow on the carpet sheet, then cut it out. at the corners you can meet the edges of the carpet for a nice seal. i'd make sure to leave a little room on the side egdes to over lap just incase.

doesnt look like theres an easy way of carpeting it, just gonna take some time and patience.

id cover the outside of it with that, well i cant think of the name of it right now, but its that shiny metal stuff, but its pliable...

nvm dont do that...just cover the outside of it with black, and then the inside of the flames with red carpet, that would make it easier then covering it all in one piece to, and it would look pretty cool IMO.
