    Quoted from pinhead52:

    this cap gives nice splatter[quoted image]

    Do these fit any standard spray can?

    Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

    Another tip. Silver spatter can be done using a silver fine point sharpie for an area that gets repainted. Practice and you can make small and large dots but remember it’s a permanent marker.

    I've tried this, but I don't think the human mind can adequately randomize the pattern. It always looks fake.

    I tried something recently which worked pretty well, and it's simple.
    Take a short piece of multi-strand wire
    (like line cord), then strip about 2 1/2 inches of insulation off. Unwind the strands, and jumble up the loose ends.
    Dip the stripped conductor into the color of your choice and first blot it on some cardboard to remove excess paint, and to see the resulting effect before applying to the subject part.
    Someone told me this method once, and I almost forgot about it until just recently when I had to do a quick restoration of a wedgehead face.
    The effect I got was somewhat of a spatter, but a smidgen of webbing effect as well. I intend to experiment with this method, varying the wire shape, paint thickness and application method. I'm going to try blasting compressed air behind the wire, and see what that gets me. My first attempt was satisfactory to me for what I wanted to achieve. Of course this method is very easy to control, as you can dab the wire as few or many times as you need to achieve your desired effect. It might be a little slow though if you need to do an entire cabinet. If you try this, report back with your results.

    Spatter is easier than webbing I think. There are several methods for doing both. I finally found a Weiler brush (well, my wife did),
    but would love to see a video of how exactly to get good webbing results with it. I saw the Tim Arnold video. His brush has obviously been heavily used. Mine is brand new, so I'm sure my approach needs to be a bit different than his.

    Quoted from EMsInKC:

    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. [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    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?

    Weiler part number 92895.
    They make dozens of different wire brushes. This may be their simplest and least expensive one.

    I couldn't find one in any hardware or home supply store around here.
    My wife got one on line. Probably from Amazon. There are cheaper online sources.
