Old lace is the name for the effect where you spray paint through a porous patterned fabric such as lace and the pattern will be transferred onto the part being sprayed. Lowrider cars use this technique frequently, especially on the roofs to get a pattern with a resemblance of plaid with roses.
What you will need:
- Something to paint already basecoated with the color you want, sanded and clean.
- A piece of fabric with a negative space pattern like a lace tablecloth or a crocheted blanket big enough to cover what you are painting.
- A second color to spray, usually darker or slightly off the basecoat color.
- Everything to spray such as an HVLP gun, compressor, respirator, gloves, etc.
