Outlines and shaders

Hey

Okay, so here is my idea; I'm trying to make comic book style assets for a project, these assets have a black outline and a coloured mesh. I've used the aiToon because it gives a coloured outline but I find that I cannot colour different faces of the mesh with another shader (Arnold or normal) and keep this outline.

For instance in the DNA helix above, notice the different coloured spokes. My question is this: is it possible to have a multiple shaders with just the edge outline of aiToon shader on top?

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately this only allows two shaders, I need multiple shaders for this and some of the other models.

Have you tried the Mix shader?
