    need help
    Can anyone help me with this? I painted this on a rabbit for practice. It turned out better than i thought for the first time. But the problem i had was the lace lifting. any suggestions on dampening it? i used some slow reducer which i sprayed on. But i dont think i got the lace wet enough. i sprayed through a 1.4 tip sata digital at 11 psi at the gun. When i try it again i was wondering if i should increase or decrease air pressure and i was thinking of over reducing the paint to flow better. but if someone who has experience can tell me how to do it right i would appreciate it. thanks and i know someone will ask why only half the car is painted. the reason is i take a painting class at the community college and my partner is out of town and i went ahead and painted my side. it is a junk car so it didnt really matter. thanks in advance for any tips you OG painters can give me. and this is my second paint job.

    OK this will help keep the lace down, and not lift up on you while your spraying........

    When mixing your base, instead of 50% base, and 50% reducer

    Use
    40% base
    40% normal clear
    10% clear hardner
    10% reducer.

    Trust me it works.........the "tackyness" of the clear will keep the lace down, as it your pattern gets color............though You should practice a few passes on a long test panel, cuz it will lay down defrent then normal base of course............aslo plan ahead, cuz the only thing you will be able to lay over it, is clear.

    Though you could lay clear mixed with something like flake or pearl......then more clear over that.

    You guys are pretty wily, where you come up with this, I'll never know.

    But, I love it! Question... do you actually leave the lace on the car and clear over it, or do you use the lace as a mask and peel it off before you clear?

    the lace is only used as a template for the design.......you remove it before you put down the clear or tha candy........it's just to get the crisp pattern you want bro...but what do i know........good luck............--------

    I like the idea of lace patterns..........I think the downside is that the majority of patterns are of flowers or something else thats a bit too on the feminen side for most guys

    if your talking about air pressure getting behind it have a pattern layed out and 2 people to help hold each side and strech it a little and lay it over and spray a medium coat and leave it dont do no more than one use color changing purple to green matchs pretty good with most colors if you really want to get crazy the black sutt from a torch put a small fan behind it blows in to the base looks good under candy
