Quoted from jeffc:
I'm aware of the Gottlieb webbing, but did they also do a splatter? Perhaps on earlier games? Any pics of such splatter and any idea of years/games?
My Buck Rogers has splatter. The method I have used to replicate this is using a rattle can a depress the spray nozzle very little - the paint will spit out creating the round drops. Problem with this method is some paint will pool in the lip so you have to be careful not to tip it and cause that paint to 'spill out'. I have also been told that removing the nozzle from the tip also works as it won't atomize the paint much and create a similar effect - have not tried that.
