Cheers to making it happen with the tools in your garage. Couldnt find a decent price on powder coating so I opted to use my paint sprayer black with a two part clear coat

This was my first time trying this technique. I love it! Little blurry in spots but overall just cool.

The lace needs to be tight against the surface you're spraying too.  If you didn't cut out a hole for the fuel filler, then that's why it's blurry in places on top of the tank.  You can lightly spray a fixative to the backside of the lace, so that it's really tight to the metal, then spray.  They make fixatives that don't transfer to the metal, but any residual fixative that did stick to metal surface can then be cleaned off when the paint is cured.

Tank looks great. I actually like that some spots are blurry, it breaks the pattern up a bit.

Good call on the fixative. I did cut a hole for the fuel filler but the struggle was getting all of the angles without overlapping the lace. I was looking at tons online and it seemed like most people were doing relatively flat surfaces. Then filling in the curves with a solid color.

Definitely a learning curve.

The hardest part was hanging out in the lace section at Joanns fabrics with all the home school moms

Yeah, it's a cool technique.  I don't do it a lot with paint, but I'm a ceramicist, so I do it for glaze application.
