Pete Finlan aka Hot Dog Kustoms explains how he has perfected the moving checkers pattern.
Step by Step Moving Checkers Pattern
Lay out tape (size of the tape dictates how big the checkers will be).
Using the tape as a guide, equally space your lines.
Set the gun for 1-2″ pattern and go perpendicular across your tape. Spray your paint so that the edges leave a faded paint effect.
Remove the tape
Apply tape over the areas that you just sprayed.
Using the same fan pattern & same paint color spray between the lines that you had sprayed before.
Remove all the tape. You’ve now got the pattern.
Spray some shadowed effect around the edge, apply pinstriping (if you want) and then clear.
