Thats it, you got it, its as simple as that. You can verie the desighn by crimping or bunching up the cloth in certain places. Lay down your base color, let dry, lay out the cloth the way you want it in the pattern you want, mist a light coat of your top coat let tack, lift off the cloth add any shading or effects you might want and your ready for your next step weather it be clearing or another layer of graphics or whatever you choose.

I just saw that on Monster Garage. That was awsome. It would be cool to do that on an old woody and match the wood stain as best as possible.

Cory, if you look in the photo album of our very own Madd Syntst that woody station wagon is actually custom paint. Very sweet job he did.

BstMech a cheese cloth paint job varies in the look depending on the colors used, but its basically just like a filigree type look. The cheese cloth is very loose woven fabric and when the paint it sprayed over it, after you peel off the cloth you have a grid and depending on how you lay out the cloth you can get anything frm a spiderweb looking pattern to a woograin type effect. Maby if you look on the discovery channel website they have a picture of the truck. Just do a search on "Monster Garage" When you get there look for "the nut shaker" F-150

I have a buddy who used plastic wrap to create a marble look. He got the tip off a video he ordered from House of Kolor. It looks pretty cool.

This technique reminds me of the "lace" paint we used to do way back in the early 70's. The cheesecloth is just a variation of the technique. It only proves what goes around comes around. Any of you guys remember the lace technique?

Yeah, the plastic wrap is a pretty cool one...let the paint set up for a few minutes, lay the wrap over it, let it set 10 minutes maybe and then pull it off and spray your clear when it's ready.

jwcnj45 remember it, I still use it. Havn't used it on a auto application in a while, but for the home it looks great too. Did it for a bros wifes sewing room a couple months ago to pick up some exstra cash. That was also what I was reffering to as "filigree" because my brain couldn't think of the word lace at the time. How about fish scaling, havn't seen that in a long long time either

That marble plastic wrap trick has been around a long time. There are hundreds of other tricks, but something needs to remain secret and tradmark don't it?

Wow HK you sure brought back some faded memories to me about the old days of custom painting. Do I remember "fish scales"? Man I think I was the king of them in this area for a while way back when. Wanna bet they make a comeback again someday and all the young guys out there will think it's all brand new techniques. Do you remember "Freak Drops",at least that's what we called them. You did them with an airbrush and overthinned lacquer keeping the airbrush in real close and triggering out a puddle of paint then just air to make an explosion looking pattern? I've probably got many other "lost" secrets just like you. Man it was fun doing that work back then.

OK. Now,shoot some straight lacquer at low pressure from about 2 feet away and what do you get? Cobwebs. Boy you guys sure bring back some old memories.

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 :cool:

Hello,

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.

Thanks,
Steve
