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