I painted an r2d2 trash can with the house of kolor marbelizer and green kandy and I use it for my business card. Guys are always asking me who painted it. I also have a set of moroso sbc valve cover marbelized with blue kandy for sale if any one wants the $40.00 <img src="graemlins/mwink.gif" border="0" alt="[mwink]" />

Oh yeah, love the freak drops and blow ups, I was doing them before I knew they were popular Cool stuff hapens when your learning. Cobwebbing was pretty big too, don't see much of any of those anymore. I'm sure they will be big again, history repeats itself. Endless line stripeing, freakdrops, lace, fishscaling, bilboard size murals they'll be back. The fender flares, flat black and beer tap handles are here so I'm sure they will be back, maby in a cool new way, but the basics never die

I'm new to the forum and found it by googling "cheese cloth" paint jobs. I recently purchased an 86 Virago XV1100 and it has a cheese cloth paint job on it. One of the previous owners had stored the bike and had thrown some across the tank causing some chips. Can anyone tell me how I can repair this? I'm trying to redo the bike as cheap as possible, so taking to a shop isn't an option. I use to work in a body shop when I was younger, so spraying isn't a problem (I'm old as dirt now, but I remember seeing all of the custom paint jobs that was talked about in previous post). The paint is red with a black cheese cloth overlay. If it can be repaired, great. If not I will just repaint the whole bike.

oh ...Does she remember you ask
One day when I was painting my Buddies girlfriends car he suggested that he wanted to do something special.
So..... I sent him in to see my wife to see if she still had any of the old lace curtains his exwife had left behind You guessed it A box full of curtains We dug thru it and found just the right one
The Dart now sported a white lace stripe around it's ***.
Looked really good actually.But lace curtains ruined
I've always thought I'd like to do that again

Thanked 33 Times in 31 Posts old thread but really brings back some painting memories. The last technique I did was cobwebbing a set of SS hood stripes. White stripes with black cobwebs. Can it even be done with the newer paints. The old way was unthinned lacquer. The newer paints are too thin to do it and most places don't sell lacquer anymore. Of course not too many people are into the cobwebs or spiderwebs anyways or so I think. Then again, a lot don't know what it is.
