I just used 1/16 inch fine line tape on the tank to do layout and kept changing it until it looked right. Then set out masking, took a while but the tape goes on and comes off real easy. Just don't be in a rush. You can always find things to practice spraying on such as the grill (did a flame job on a few) mower, coffee cans, kid's toys they don't play with........ I do not recommend spraying family members or pets, gets messy.
