    I’ve been spraying a lot through dryer fabric sheets for some texture. Going through the shop today I found something they can be used.
    A paint strainer for a 5 gallon bucket !!
    It’s got tiny holes and almost like women’s nylons/ pantyhose.

    I tried spraying through some when I got home. Here’s the texture I got from it DB51D6C3-B14D-427D-84F7-AC4161ABB36A.jpeg
    I’ll keep playing with it but the nice thing I noticed is you can see through it as you spray.

    Here it is folded over itself to get a really light texture. It’s hard to see in the pic but I was still able to see through it as I sprayed 9012573E-FAE5-415E-88A1-7DC7DEA01659.jpeg

    The only pic I had taken was the first pic I posted in the thread. It lays texture pretty subtle so it’s hard for my camera to pick up. But I had used this texture on my first portrait I tried and was pretty happy with the results.
