    I amy have mis-understood the question or maybe I am just abit slow but I have heard of cob-webbing being done by laying out cheesecloth and painting over it in a differnt color.

    Read the post that has scans of old magazine. It explains how to. I would just like to see more photos of it on cars. DOES ANY ONE HAVE GOOD PHOTOS OF "THE HAWIIAN" dragster that has cobb web paint? Come on KIWIKEV and Royal Shifter I know you guys do. KING

    Vintage painting takes vintage equipment.
    I use my 1942 Binks Model 17 Spray gun

    a real POS but it never has failed me.
    I use a 66SD x 66 Nozzle with a 15 Needle ( .017" dia)
    the rule is bigger is better with nozzles and needles.

    ALSA makes a new basecaot cobweb product.

    I still use acrylic lacquer with Polyurethane clearcoat over the top.

    I had an old painter tell me that the first cob-webbed car that Watson did was a mistake-- according to him Watson woke up half-cocked and stumbled out to spray the roof of a car, forgot to reduce the lacquer, and accidentally cob-webbed it. Probably a myth, but that's how you do it. Watson was the man.

    That cheap paint that they sell at Kragen is Laquer-based, right? Anyone tried it?
