These are the same cobweb spinners the film industry uses on films as well as stage theater. These cobweb spinners use Aerodynamic airflow from the spinning fan which blows forward and bends outward from the lid lip as the product inside is flung out from tiny holes that create a stringy airborne web onto the area needed. We have used the same device on several horror films and Halloween haunts over the last 10 years assisting with art departments. It works much better and faster than shooting compressed air from a heavy air compressor through a hot glue gun.
Blade and Cap color:

FX Web Spinner Pro Movie Cobweb maker
The spinner spins out a wider web (rubber cement) over a larger area with a more even flow. Rubber cement is flammable when it spins out so don't spray on an open flame. Once the rubber cement is dry once the chemical inside the cement evaporates (about 10 minutes), it is no longer flammable and totally safe. Feel free to light candles within the cobweb as The rubber cement will just melt when in contact with flame.
For thinner webbing, You could mix a 1:1 ratio of rubber cement and Bestine Rubber Cement Thinner.
(There are consumer types of web guns that use glue sticks but the bad part is, you have to attach an air compressor which cost money and you have to drag it around with you. You will also have to adjust the air pressure for proper output each time). With the WebSpinner, you will be done by the time those glue guns are warmed up!
All you have to do is pour a small amount of the rubber cement into the cylinder, place the lid on and tighten with the rubber end cap screw, Attach it to your drill and you are ready to go!
To clean the cylinder after use, use mineral spirits or rubber cement thinner, Let stand in the cylinder for about 5 minutes with the lid on while gently moving the thinner around in the cylinder, then spin the remaining cleaner out the same way you used for cement and or rub off the remaining rubbery fluid with a rag or paper towel but be careful of sharp edges inside the cylinder. Make sure the tiny holes are clear of cement for the next time the spinner is used.
We have sold over 600 of these to production studios, Propmasters, Art Departments and scenic designers for theatrical stages.
After the cement is fully dry (about 10 min.), you can lighten the webs up with spray paint. Grey primer looks very good or you can use a lighter tan color. You can also use powder if you want realistic, dusty looking webs to your display.
The 8" blade was custom modified with a 37-degree pitch for a more projected airflow.
*Drill not included.
Do not use on fabric or hair as the product (rubber cement) will be very difficult to get off.
