Default Spider Wrap

Hey guys I am still very new and was practicing a "spider wrap" as it was called in Dale clemens book. The first one was a bust as I ran out room and could not finish it properly. The second one turned out good at least to me. These were done on pvc and it will go on a rod I am building next week.

I will probably change the gold spider to silver and keep the outer diamond gold.

Question What will work best to keep the gold from shinning threw the black threads on top when I put some finish on it. Should I use nylon thread with color preserver or NCP Black threads. There will be no under wrap.

Any tips on spacing to keep screw ups to a minimum? Is it just trial and error/guesstimating number of thread need?

Thanks for any feedback on questions or constructive criticism.

There are obviously a few unpacked threads on the outside of the wrap in the pics that will be fixed.






Screwed up but I decided to finish it anyway just see how it looked. Note to self leave plenty of room.

To keep the gold from bleeding through you just need to pack the threads a little tighter. As far as getting a better end result, you just need to work on your spacing and rather than just doing a 1+ you need to do a 3 or 4+ to get more detail on the legs of the spider.
