Unreduced paint, very low pressure, in a cup gun is how we did it. I haven't done it in a very long time so I don't know if a hvlp gun will work.

unreduced will give you the big webs. you can change the way it looks by reducing and changing air pressure. we done tons of it on the vans in the 70's.

so ya'll are saying use a conventional siphon gun? Does tip size matter? I've got an old Binks #7.......how much air? You think urethane with catalyst will be thick enough?

I read a post on an airbrush forum a while back about a guy that took some masking tape , made a frame and stuck it around an actual spider web in his shop , then took that framed web , painted it white with an airbrush on low pressure , then simply layed in on a black background and cleared over it , it looked awesome , he did the door handles on his truck , it was pretty neat .

It is so funny when all I have to do is walk out in the garage and try it, but does the urethane paints do the same thing as far as this "stringing" that lacquers did? I did a little "cobwebbing" back in the seventies and it was a no brainer that is for sure. Just put the paint in the gun with no thinner and shoot. But with a urethane? Is it going to be a thick mess that would need ten coats of clear to cover?

That lacquer would lay down flat, I am not so sure urethane is going to. Well....maybe a base coat, maybe it would lay down flat. I'll have to get out there and try. I wanted to do some cobwebbing on a project I have. But I have some lacquer that I was going to use. I'll give it a try with urethane or base coat.

Brian

ps, that was with a good old Devilbiss JGA502 siphon gun that I did it with.
