    I use Clay's Weiler brush method and plain old Americana lamp black right out of the bottle. It's pretty simple. The closer you are to the cabinet you'll get webbing. The further away you'll get spatter. That's it. The lightness or darkness of the webbing/spatter depends on how heavy you get the paint on the bristles.

    I think anyone on here who has seen my work can tell you that it works, and it's easy. No mixing of solvents or thinning or anything. I can do a head in 10 minutes and a cab in probably 20-25.

    The problem with both webbing and spatter is that people tend to go way too heavy with both. Either the webbing is too thick, or there's way too much of it, sometimes both. It can be seen on many of the pictures that are posted in this forum.

    The factory webbing never dominated the artwork. Better to be sparing with it than overly heavy.

    This is my webbing and spatter, all done with the same Weiler brush. 20161029_173520 (resized).jpg20180113_205803 (resized).jpg20190327_145259 (resized).jpg

    Quoted from jrpinball:

    Looks great. I don't have any spray equipment or an airbrush, but I did finally get a Weiler brush. Can you give us a general idea how to use it for both webbing and spatter?

    Bend out 3 or 4 bristles. Dip in the paint. Pull back on the bristles and let them go. Hold close to the cab for webbing. Further away for spatter. That's it.

    It takes some practice. I still practice each time I do one.
