Ghost Ride Productions sells Cob Webs in a Can. Here's what they write:

Aerosol can webbing adds light layers of spider web effects to set dressing and props. Cured product is non-flammable and finished color is an opaque, dull creme.

CAUTION: This material will adhere itself to whatever you spray it on and residue is permanent.


There's a video on this page.

Note the price difference...

Yeah, whenever you look at something on Fright Catalog, always look around first to see if you can get a better price. You usually can, from what I've seen.

i have used this in the past...[ PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT SPRAY THIS ON ANYTHING YOU CARE ABOUT ]...I ruined some nice furniture by spraying it on it. Nice effect, but it will leave residue that doesnt come off no matter what you use. What about the glue gun webber...anyone used that? Does it ruin things or melt them?

I don't think it actually stains, it leaves web. Imagine a 3 year old getting a bottle of super glue and drizzling it on your rug or furniture. It's not coming back off.

I like the little commercial advert, but it is misleading when it says to spray it all over your house. A haunted house, sure!

We made a web spinner last year that uses rubber cement. Goes through lots of it, but cool webs. Unfortunately the webs are only good for that night. They sag and clump up after fog or wind. And I wouldn't use them on good furnishings or in the house at all.

I'd like to try a glue gun shooter. I hear those webs hold shape much better.

I made a hot glue gun sprayer and it worked really well. If you maintain some distance from the objects you are spraying the glue virtually dries in mid flight. It will at least become tacky. This enables you to spray it on an object and with some degree of success remove it later.

I used it outside on my stuccoed walls, light fixture, windows, and plants. Basically I was having a great time!! :D

Anyway, unless it was well lit, it really didnt show up that well, but it left no lasting affects on any of those surfaces. In fact you just ball it up and throw it away when done.

Of course, since this IS glue, if it doesnt really dry before hitting an object you have to kind of expect it to stick. I doubt I would try applying it in the house. Already dusty, dirty outside objects, No problem. :jol:

I've gotta say I really like my homemade hot glue gun webber too. I covered my entire garage with this stuff when I first built it last week, you just have to "rub" the webs off what ever it is stuck to with your hand. it spays a good 15 feet. I could not reach the ones on the ceiling. :D

To my knowledge, cob webs in a can, is just spray adhesive with a modified tip so that it strings up when shot out of the can.

hot Glue gun webbers are 10000000 times better.
Wonder if I could figure out how to do that with my can of adhesive? Lord knows my hairspray can ends up like that.;)
