The only way to get a legit shiny from your own captures is to meet a shiny in the wild. That's all there is to it. One out of 1829 (Close to that number) Pokemon battles, you will meet a shiny. Still, that doesn't guarantee you a shiny.

Shiny Cubone ftw.

I just caught my first shiny last night, and it is only the second shiny I have ever seen. I have been playing Pokemon for about 7 straight months now. That should give you an idea of how elusive they are :)

One out of 1829 (Close to that number) .

Close...well not that close. You got the digits switched around. It's actually 1 in 8192 (signigicance of this number is 2 to the 13th power, incase you like trivia.)

PokeRadar is just about the best way to do it. Know which shiny pokemon you want and PokeRadar in that spot. I'm told the grass glows yellow (not the same as the yellow exclamation lines that often appear for Radar-Exclusive pokemon) when there is a shiny there, but it may be another pokemon found in that area instead of the one you want, which can be quite discouraging. Patience, and keep at it.
